Framed Burlap Earring Organizer

By: Lisa from Cucicucioo

Transform an old frame into this amazing Framed Burlap Earring Organizer.  Burlap lends itself very well to earring organization, since the weaving often results in larger holes, perfect for earrings.  This is a great way to reuse materials you may have around your home already and is a budget-friendly and decorative way to display your favorite earrings.

Materials:

  • Picture frame (either a hanging or standing one, depending on where you want to keep it)
  • Burlap (or other loosely woven fabric)
  • Paint brush and paint (optional)

 

Instructions:

  1. Remove the glass and backing from your frame. Discard the glass but keep the cardboard backing.

  2. If you want to paint your frame, chances are you’ll need to do more than one coat, so start painting straight off.

  3. If you paint thin coats, they will dry quickly so every so often while you’re preparing the rest of the display you can check it and add another coat.

  4. Some versions of this project staple the fabric directly to the frame, but you need a heavy duty stapler for that, which I don’t have. If you do, just do that. If not, take the cardboard insert from inside your frame. If it’s slightly smaller than the inside of the frame, it won’t work so cut another piece of cardboard that fits in perfectly, otherwise everything will just fall right out. Measure 15 mm in from all four sides and draw lines.

  5. Using a box cutter or scissors, cut out the center of the cardboard, leaving just the 15 mm wide border INTACT.

  6. Cut open your burlap bag (or lay whatever fabric you’re using flat) and place the cardboard border over it. Cut all around the edges so you have a rectangle of fabric the same size as the cardboard.

  7. Start stapling the burlap to one side of the cardboard border, then continue to the opposite side, holding the fabric taut. Then staple the other sides. Try to staple as close to the outer edge of the cardboard as possible so they will be hidden by the frame.

  8. When you’ve stapled all around the edges, trim the bits of fabric that stick out beyond the cardboard.

  9. Pop this new insert inside your frame with the cardboard border facing the back.

  10. And start sticking your earrings in! Earrings with fish hooks are the easiest to just slip in. You can also use this for earrings with regular posts though you do have to reach around the back to put on the earring back.

  11. Once you fill up your frame with earrings, you might notice the weight pulling the cardboard border from the edges of the frame’s inside. If this happens, just add a little glue to keep it in place.
