Earring Storage Ideas?

I have more than 200 pairs of earrings, and my collection is forever growing.
I bought these display things from eBay that hold 36 pairs each, but I've run out of room and storing those is a problem on its own. Another problem is that they're horrible for storing dangle earrings. I tried using a wooden picture frame and backing it with window screen, and that works for dangle earrings, but I'm not happy with it. I'm looking for a cute way to store/display all of my earrings without having them separated between 6 different displays. I've seen a lot of ideas on here, but they're more suited for someone with a smaller collection.


Sorry if this is the wrong site, but I saw a big thread about this topic while searching on google.

There are several simple, cute, and easy to make ideas for storing and showing off your earrings.

  1. You can buy a large piece of cork board. Build your own frame. You can use some cute designer wood to make this with. You will just need some ribbon and tacks to make your own board to store all your earrings on.
  2. I saw some people use a fancy lace around the boarders in their room. The lace is used for hanging the dangle earrings on and in the middle with the small holes they have attached the stud earrings on it. The lace can go around the top of your room as a boarder and you could have two or three lace ribbons attached to this boarder in your room. They have some adorable colored lace you can buy at different fabric stores.

  4. I also saw an idea that used your closet door. People used riboon and tacks to make a store display on their closet door. There they hung up ribbon and attached the earrings to the ribbon and made a rather nice display. You could even add a small mirror in the center of the door so you can make sure you have the right earrings on for the day.
  5. You could also make a shadow box and use cork backing in the box to hang the earrings on. You could seperate the box into different sections. For your hanging earrings use a thin piece of wire to attach to the wood. Hang a rool of earring on there and see where you can attach your next wire.

I would suggest looking on Pinterest and checking out earring displays. They have some very cute ones on there and a lot of great ideas too.

I bought an old window screen cleaned it up added a ribbon as a hanger and hung all my earrings with the backs to hold them in place. It holds all my collection and I can see them at a glance.


Origially I saw a screen door that a bottom had been added and hooks for necklaces etc.. This works for me

There are a lot of ideas on Pinterest but most of them will take some "making" by someone - maybe yourself?

  • For that many earrings you will have to have something that can maybe be placed on a door or wall as most holders will only hold about 50 pair.

  • I like the idea of having a frame with slats across and something like cup holders or many other holder type items so you can place the slats as far apart as you need for dangle or short earrings.
  • I found one similar that maybe you could get someone to build for you.
