I have my favorite pieces of jewelry that I tend to wear all the time. I can’t help it, they’re fabulous and I gravitate to them. Big, bold, and gold is clearly my earring style. Rather than sticking them in a drawer or jewelry box putting them on an earring stand on my bedside table makes getting to them so much simpler.
Making your own DIY earring stand is easier than you think! With just a few supplies you can make a jewelry stand to match your home decor. I’m making mine to go on my nightstand. My bedroom furniture is all black so my stands are black and metal.
I used a picture frame, plastic canvas, and an egg cup (along with some spray paint and a hot glue gun) to create these DIY easy to make earring stands. And you can pick whether you want a more vertical or horizontal earring stand. The vertical stand allows me to set out my necklaces as well.
- picture frames (mine are 5×7)
- wooden egg cup (a candlestick holder would also work)
- plastic canvas
- paint and painbrushes, or spray paint
- hot glue gun and gluesticks
- marker (for measuring)
I wanted the plastic to fill the entire frame, so I used the paper insert from the picture frames to measure how big to cut my plastic canvas. I marked the measurements with a marker and then cut out the size that I needed.
I quickly put hot glue all around the inside of the frame and then placed the plastic canvas. I added some additional hot glue in a few spots as needed.
Because I purchased a black frame I didn’t need to paint it. For the black stand I only needed to paint my egg cup, which I did using acrylic paint.
For the metal stand I used spray paint to paint both the egg cup and the picture frame.
Once the picture frame and egg cups were painted and ready, I just needed to assemble the two pieces. With the egg cup upside down I put a good amount of hot glue right in the middle, and then placed the picture frame on top.
You can place the picture frame either vertically or horizontally. I did one of each.
Once the hot glue was set my stands were ready for some earrings!
The vertical frame makes it easy to drape a necklace over the stand as well. Then you can have all your jewelry picked out and ready to wear.
I can store my favorite earrings on my stand so they are always easy to get to. The pair on the right is by far the pair of earrings I wear the most.
