Hoop Earring HolderI only wear hoop earrings. They tended to get ruined just laying around my sink, as they'd get wet and discolor. So I tried finding a holder of some sort, with no luck. I thought about making one, and this is what I came up with:


The hangers that came with the cafe' rods were not far enough away from the wall for the earrings to fit, so I tried the screw in hooks and they worked perfectly. Hope you enjoy!

Earring sometimes irritate my ears, no matter what the post or wire is made of. The easiest solution I found was wax. Put the posts in a candle. The wax of the candle coats the earring making it so they won't ever bother you again.

A round candle can be used as a cute earring holder. You just poke the earrings in it (have a container to hold backs) this way you can see each one clearly. The wire or French type backs can be put at top dangling down. This looks so cute as well as saving earrings life. Most earrings except 14k gold eventually due to air, wear or age tarnish.


Some ladies can't wear gold, with prices of gold in today's market and mixed metals are being used more and more. The paraffin just puts a layer of protection without harming the earring in any way. I love my candle earring tree .

I made an earring holder, that can be adjusted to any size you need, out of a large embroidery hoop and needlepoint canvas.

Organize and decorate at the same time with post earrings! I have purchased inexpensive scented pillar candles, not to burn, but to use as a "holder" and display of my post earrings.

I came across these car speaker covers in a free box recently. Folks are always asking about how to keep earrings separate, and the car speaker cover's little holes are perfect for them.

I have to use clip ons because my ears were infected. I can't find anything anywhere about a clip on earring holder, so I have decided to make one myself! Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!

I have covered a sturdy piece of cardboard with velveteen, I used black. I then used a stiff ribbon from the fabric store and stitched the ends on the back edge of the covered cardboard, pulling taunt. It depends on how many earrings you have as to how large you want to make the holder. If your earrings are heavy you may want to make an anchor stitch halfway across so the ribbon won't sag. I also sewed ribbon onto the top back so that I could hang it on the wall.


Hope this helps

Might not be pretty, but sure would work well in a closet!: Buy a couple of those multiple pant hangers (five rods for five pairs of slacks) available in in every big box discount store and clip on your earrings as you purchase them. The rods on these hangers are not too thick and I'm guessing you could attach at least 10 to 15 pairs of clip-on earrings per each row of a single hanger with five rods! Just something to consider! Let us know what works for you, okay?
