DIY: Earring Organizer

Image

I am very excited to share this next DIY project with y’all today. I have been on a jewelry organization kick lately after creating my Texas sized necklace organizer from a few months ago. I knew I needed a matching storage tool for all of my earrings and found the perfect solution with a few embroidery hoops. Follow along for the tutorial. Enjoy!

I began by gathering all my supplies. I found the embroidery hoops at Walmart, the larger one was $3 and the smaller one was $2.50. I also found this lace valance curtain for $1.99 at Savers which has been useful for a few projects. Found my scissors and got to work!

I started off by laying the larger circle of the hoop down on a flat surface and covered it with the lace curtain. I pushed the smaller circle in making sure the lace is pulled tightly all around. Then I fastened the hoops together at the top.

Next, I went around the hoops and cut off the excess lace. I made sure to trim it really well so it could lay flat once it was on the wall.

And that’s it! Here it is before it was adorned by my earrings.

Voila! Super functional on the wall, right next to my diy necklace organizer. The hoops hold so many earrings! These two still have so much room for more, which is dangerous to think about because I do not need to be buying more jewelry.

I am so glad I decided on the yellow hoops. They look so nice next to the necklaces. The jewelry wall has become so useful the past few weeks as I am getting ready for my day. No more searching around for the lost pair of earrings right before work.

This has definitely been one of my most functional projects and it was so easy to achieve. I really hope you all give it a try! If you do, please share the pictures!

I cannot wait to share how I have organized the rest of my jewelry. Til then, I hope everyone is off to a great start of the week!

Pinspire Me: Embroidery Hoops

Once again, I know I am super late on this trend….I am really digging embroidery hoop art. It seems so easy while still providing a huge statement on a wall. And there are so many different ways it seems like to place them on the wall.

I have a thing for gallery walls and it seems like fabric covered embroidery hoops can add a really interesting dynamic. I want to show y’all a few pictures that are inspiring me to find some blank wall space for the blank wall over my bed.

I love all the different sizes of the hoops and the diverse fabrics. It seems like a really cohesive gathering. I do not have a headboard and I think this may be a really great solution to create the illusion of a headboard.

This one has such a great vintage feel to it. And I love anything with a few birds thrown in there. I hope I can find some fabric with a few bird silhouettes.

I really like so many things about this picture. The fabric covered lamps, the map, but especially the hoops. The half circle presentation of the hoops looks really cool. This may be a good idea for a small space like the entryway.

I really love all the vibrant colors in this example. It seems like every piece of fabric is totally my style here. Vintage, yet not distressed.

This, however, is what began this whole obsession with embroidery hoops. But as awesome as this embroidered rap lyric may be, it would actually require me to learn how to embroider. And I cannot see that happening anytime soon. It made me realize though how an embroidery hoop can make anything look fancy or classy.

This is what has been consuming my mind as of late. I hope it is something I can carry out soon. Not this weekend, this weekend will be devoted to my nephews 9th birthday celebration!!!! I am so excited!

I promise I will be back soon to share a few things I have been working on. Until then, I hope everyone is enjoying their week!
