DIY Earring Holder Tutorial


DIY Earring Holder 
Hi friends this DIY Earring Holder is my final post as Designer Spotlight for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge  where the theme is "We're Going Around In Circles"



I love to incorporate recycling in my crafts and here I recycled CDs and cardboard tubes to create my earring holders.
DIY Earring Holder 
Each layer of this earring stand can hold 11- 13 pairs of earrings and the whole stand can display 30-39 pairs of earrings!
Handmade Foam Rose
 Foam is a material I have enjoyed crafting with even before it became the "in thing"!! All the roses and rosebuds on the earring holders were made using thin sheets of pink foam and Spellbinders Rose Creations  die.

 Here are some of the Tutorials to make the foam roses : Handmade Flower Tutorials. You can adapt most paper flower Tutorials to make foam flowers ...the main points are to use thin sheets of foam and to use hot glue as the adhesive.
 Before I made this stand I used to store my earring in Ferrero Rocher boxes...it was okay but I had to go through stacks of boxes to get to a earring I needed...this way the earrings are clearly displayed and dangle so prettily!

Materials Required
  • CDs- though you may be tempted to use other materials for the layers, CDs are the sturdiest and easiest option. I used 4 CDs here.
  • Supporting cylinders- you can use any sturdy cylinder which is easy to glue to the CDs. Easy choices would be toilet paper rolls, the cardboard tubes inside cling film/ Aluminium foil rolls/wrapping paper rolls etc. I used the cardboard tubing of a party popper [you can see the  picture later down in the post]. You can also recycle plastic bottles to create your cylinders but plastic is trickier to stick to a CD and you need to have a bottle that is aptly shaped! You need 3 Paper rolls
DIY Earring Holder Tutorial
  • Paper- to line your CDs and Paper Rolls.
  • Adhesive- Liquid adhesive and the Hot glue gun.
  • Foam circles- optional- will explain why soon
  • Something to punch holes in the CDs- You can heat a nail and pierce through the CD but it requires a lot of patience and it can be frustrating! Easiest is to use a Cropadile or a good strong punch such as the WRMK hole punch.
DIY Earring Holder Tutorial 
Pretty up your CD with circles of pattern paper cut slightly smaller than the area of the CD. [It is better to cut your paper not to cover the entire CD so that you dont have to worry about strong adhesion at the area where the holes will be punched].
Punch holes in 3 CDs only as the 4th CD will be your base layer and will not hold earrings.
Punch holes at intervals of approximately 1/2 inch...you dont need to measure anything just eyeball it! Dont punch the holes right at the edge of the CD...punch 3-4mm inside the outer circumference of the CD.
DIY Earring Holder Tutorial 
Optionally add a circle of foam to the under-surface of the CD...adding foam and hot gluing the paper roll cylinders to it gives a more secure adhesion!

 I have used adhesive backed foam sheets which are nowadays available in the market but you can use regular foam too.

For one of my earring holders I recycled  a confetti party popper we had used in my daughter's birthday party.

DIY Earring Stand
In the first earring stand I made ,I was not sure if the rack would topple over after adding earrings so I created a weighted base using a plastic container.

But later on I found out that it was stable and sturdy with just  a CD as the base.

I hope you liked this idea and I hope this will be useful for not only for others like me who have a good collection of dangling earrings but for also talented ladies who make and sell earrings at craft fairs and exhibitions.

  3. Hi Sonia..
    This is such a fantastic way of recycling old cds and getting something useful out of it. Earing holders are not something we go to when we buy organizers but i am sure hen we do make one ...it is extremely useful...I have a messy stack of earings and I will make something like this for me....Ty for sharing the tutorial with us.
