DIY Hooptastical Earring Hanger from an Embroidery Hoop

If you have as many pairs of earrings as I do, jewelry storage is an important issue. I store my jewelry in several different ways.

Lace to Dye For
You want to choose a lace that small holes throughout the design that you can hook your earrings into. My mother was kind enough to donate some old curtains she had to this project. A quick trip to the thrift store and you will be lace endowed in no time. Take your lace outside and lay on newspaper. Spary lace with Tulip Fabric Paint making sure to coat evenly. I was particulally smitten on these neon shades.

Hoop Hop Hooray
Cheap wooden embroidery hoops come in all shapes and sizes. Choose based on how many earrings you have to display. I painted my wooden hoop with black Crafty Chica paint and sponge brush.

Stretch It, Stretch It Good
Once your dyed lace and painted hoop have dried it’s time for the two to join forces. Stretch your lace across your embroidery hoop and tighten. Using your scissors trim the excess fabric. I added some Liquid Fusion glue to make sure the fabric didn’t slip in the hoop. I then coated the lace with a coat of Aleene’s Fabric Stiffener & Draping Liquid to make the lace extra sturdy.

Beam With Pride
Once everything has dried all that is left to do is hang your new snazzy jewelry holder on the wall and hook your earrings into place. I mean really screen in a picture frame is so last year, it’s all about the neon lace.

    I love love love that you did a project incorporating lace. And, you made it fuchsia and black too?! This project has my name written all over it.

    Glad everyone likes the project. I kept seeing people frame swatches of cute fabric in hoops and hanging them in clusters on the wall and loved it. Then my friend asked me if I would help her make a framed piece of screen earring holder like the one I have and I thought well I want to try something a little different.

    I love the neon dye and black paint, has a very Madonna circa

    It's like you read my mind! I've been staring at a pile of earrings on top of my dresser trying to figure out the best way to organize them. Problem solved 🙂 Thanks so much!

    Oh My! I've done this with screen and an old picture frame that I painted, but this is so much better. Thanks so much for sharing!!

    This is adorable. And so useful, because the posts are securely fastened. On my wall-hanging earring holder, they always fall out. I will have to try this!
