Earring Hanger V2

You may remember my earring hanger that I posted some time ago.  No?  Well, go check it out, then!  It’s fun and easy to make.

What do you do when you have a teenage daughter with way more earrings than her hanger can hold?  Make her a new one, of course!

While rummaging around my supplies looking for a spare frame, I came across an extra piece from one of those wire cube storage widgets.  This thing has been hanging around forever in my pile of “you never know” craft supplies.

Today, it found it’s purpose!

It’s as easy as pie to put together (and definitely takes less time than pie!).

All you need is one piece of a wire cube storage set, or some other wire-frame widget, some zip ties, a piece of plastic canvas and some of those awesome 3M Command hooks.  All of these things were in my craft supplies, left over from other projects.  Total cost… $0!

The piece of plastic canvas fit perfectly across, leaving two rows at the top for the earrings that won’t fit through the smaller holes.

Hey, wait a minute!  Some of those earrings are mine…. *grumblegrumble*

I put the zip ties on from the back and then trimmed them, so the closure is hidden.

Using larger hooks on top gave her a place to put her gargantuan hoop earrings while simultaneously keeping the earring hanger sturdy.

A single smaller hook on the bottom holds the whole shebang nice and steady so the earrings don’t get bounced off!

If you make a Sew Awesome Craft or any pattern, craft or recipe from sewhooked,  I’d love to see a photo.  Email me or add it to the sewhooked flickr group.

Happy crafting!

    Genius! I have 2 of those wire things, and the hanging hooks in MY “you never know” supply stack. What a wonderful idea. Thanks so much.
