Hi, my name is Alicia and I’m addicted to dangly earrings.

When I still lived at home, I stuck a couple of cork tiles (leftover from a reno project of my parents – forgive them, it was the 80s) inside my wardrobe doors and arranged my earrings with pins. In our home now, though, we have a built-in wardrobe so there was no door to utilise, which left my lovely sparkly things in a tangled mess in a drawer, prone to being lost, forgotten or damaged. It is, however, very deep which left loads of unused space on the wall inside.

I screwed eye-hooks straight into the wall by hand (after making a pilot hole with a metal skewer) and strung picture wire between them, wrapping the end back around itself to secure. Let’s just pretend that the critical part is in focus in the next shot, mkay?

It’s perfect for light jewellery such as earrings and chains, but I still keep bangles and chunky necklaces in my dresser drawer. The project cost only small change… which means more money to spend on jewellery.

  • Thanks Melanie. If you have a regular wardrobe you can do the same thing on the back of the door. You could also grab an old frame from an op shop (thrift store) and secure the hooks into the inside of the frame.

  • I LOVE how practical and functional this is yet at the same time it allows for your jewelry to become a design element. I am too familiar with that tangled mess of jewelry in the drawer! I can’t wait to try this!

    • Glad you like it, Kimberly. Happy DIYing!
