Today, I’m going to show you how I made this DIY Earring Holder using material that I already had on-hand: chicken wire and a picture frame. You may already have these items on hand, but if you don’t, don’t worry! You can make this DIY earring holder on-the-cheap. Seriously! I’m all about easy and inexpensive DIY’s. I love re-purposing materials as well.You can accomplish this DIY within an hour and just a few bucks!

I got this wall art from Hobby Lobby several years ago. The only reason I bought this piece of art was because I loved the vintage-inspired, ornate framing. Don’t get me wrong, I also love the quote that was written inside of it, but the font just wasn’t my jam. So I bought it solely because I fell in love with the frame and I knew it would be for a DIY project later on down the road. At the time, I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, but I was just waiting patiently for the perfect DIY to incorporate.If you’ve got an old photo frame that’s just sitting around, but you love it too much to let it go, this would be the perfect DIY. You could also use a thrifted picture frame; thrift stores and flea markets have the most beautiful intricate frames that would make a bold statement on this DIY earring holder.

First, you’ll want to remove the hanging hardware from the back of your frame. Set the hardware to the side, but don’t lose it. You’re going to need it later.

This color looked great, but it wasn’t exactly what I had envisioned. It looked too pretty. I wanted to create a vintage and worn look, so after the paint was dry I lightly went over the frame with some sandpaper. Doing that gave it the look I was going for.

I flipped the frame onto the back and attached the chicken wire with a staple gun and made sure the chicken wire was cut bigger than what I needed. I stapled one in every four-wire hole and cut the excess chicken wire off with wire snips. Be careful handling chicken wire! It is exposed wire; it’s very sharp and will cut you! Wear gloves to protect your hands from cuts.  

If you want to hang this frame from the wall-this step is critical! You need to frame the back. I attached the frame with some 1×2’s cut to size and screwed them into the back.By framing out the back, will offset from the wall so that it’s not flush against the wall.Then you just want to attach your hanging hardware back onto the frame and call it a day

I hope that this Repurposed Chicken Wire Earring Holder post gave you some inspiration to create something today! Thank you again for having me on your blog and I’m looking forward to sharing more projects with you.
