Earring frame header

Here’s a how-to on an earring frame holder which you may have spotted as a prop in photos for some of my other makes. Such as here in the ribbon and bead necklace tutorial

I made a new one as a gift recently. I started with this:

frame before

Beautiful item from a charity shop, orange pine, faded cheap print – perfect! It needed something doing to it, so I upcycled it to an earring frame, and here’s how.

chalk paint frame

I used Annie Sloan’s chalk paint in Old white. It’s such a great paint because it goes on without any prior sanding needed. The frame needed two coats. (Ignore my messy craft table behind!)

Then I stapled some cotton lace tape that I had in purple to the back. Lace works perfectly for this make as it looks pretty, especially in a bedroom and the holes work as holders for your earrings. I also added a pretty ribbon trim at the bottom.

back stapled

I then added a little d ring hook to the back for hanging the frame on the wall and voila it was a simple make that looks beautiful and has a use for corralling those wayward earrings. In the original frame pictured above I added some little hooks screwed into the frame for hanging necklaces from, and I added fabric stapled across the back. Why not make an earring frame holder to match the decor in your bedroom?
