I don’t know about you, but I have so many earrings that I can’t find what I’m looking for when I need a particular pair. It’s kind of like a jewelry abyss. Now that I made one of these pallet wood earring holders I can see everything I have and it has really saved me a lot of time and frustration! This is something I use every day and I absolutely love it!
I like the idea of combining the rustic look of pallet wood and steel mess (hardware cloth) with the clean, delicate look of jewelry. Of course the idea is simple enough that you can use any materials you like.
I actually saw one of these on Etsy for $45 and couldn’t believe it…this is so easy and cheap to make, you won’t believe it! I’ve seen people make these with old windows and picture frames, but pallet wood costs nothing and gives you that fabulous rustic appeal. I always lean towards the free stuff, especially when I already had some left over pallet wood from other projects.
I have a jewelry armoire and it was a mess, and I used to rush around like a crazy woman to get ready, I can’t even really see what’s in there, and when looking for something specific I had to dig through everything to find the earrings that always ended up being in the very last place I look in.
Save yourself a lot of frustration and make one of these clever earring holders. Watch how Steve Ramsey makes this priceless treasure in his step by step tutorial so you can get some relief when you’re in a hurry too! Oh, and, P.S. make one of these for a friend or family member…they’ll love you for it!
