Easy DIY Earring Holder for the Creatively Challenged!

This is one of those grab-and-go solutions for organizing your earrings and rings. 

I am not big on organizing stuff. Definitely not one of my strengths. My mum cringes because my stuff is sometimes all over the place, especially jewelry. I tried storing my earrings in a box (see below) but it’s so hard to find the pairs in this box. They get entwined into each other. It’s hard to match the pair. Until this weekend, I always had trouble looking for the right earring for the outfit. Trust me, I had a pretty strong earring karma. BUT, I decided to change it this weekend.

I decided that I need something to not only keep it organized, but where I could see it all: rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings together to coordinate quickly and easily. So, here is my quick-fix solution, which even the most creatively challenged folks can make. Actually, the wonderful thing is you don’t even have to make it. *wink*

my box

This is what we looked like before. Can you find a perfect match? :p

So, this is what I did –

I grabbed my mum’s old net Sari cover, printed with quilted fabric on top. Usually, It is used to hang a Sari so that the outfit can  be protected from dust & moisture. The pores on the net material are perfect for hanging earrings. So, there you go. It was that simple. I had to do NOTHING. I just hung the empty net cover on the wall of my wardrobe store and hung all my earrings. Now, it only takes me few seconds to spot the perfect earring to go with my outfit.

Additionally, I took some net and made small pockets on the cover to hold the studs and rings. 🙂 Now, I can happily dclare I am free of my earring karma. Are you?
