Organization Tip: Earring Display

I just read Elsie's post on organization, including ways to display jewelry, and it made me think that some of you might find this earring organization tip useful (plus it's really, really easy!). 

All you need are two pushpins and some fishing line (or clear wire). Cut your fishing line to slightly more than twice the length of where you are going to hang it. I have a wooden shelf in my closet that I attached it to, so I stretched the fishing line across the length of the shelf, then doubled that amount and added a little more so that it has a bit of give.

Tie the loose ends of the fishing line together so you have one big loop, and then start twisting it (a lot). Once the whole thing has been twisted, use your pushpins to attach both ends wherever you are hanging it (in this case, the edges of my shelf).

All that twisting made little loops, and now you can put one pair of earrings together in each loop.

This works for any type of earring back - I use this for all my earrings, except for the tiniest little studs.

So now not only are my earrings all together in one place, they are easy to see and choose from and they look pretty. Functional and decorative is always a plus!  


  1. That really is quite a nice tip...but I wear studs mostly :(

  2. Too bad! Could work for them, though, depending on the size. It's only my super tiny ones that I don't put in, cause I don't want them to fall through the loop. Slightly larger studs don't fall out.

  3. Great idea. I've seen a similar thing done actually tying the fishing line between empty picture frames. I need somewhere to store my earrings. COuld be a project up ahead for me too then.

  4. your blog is very pretty. i love your earring collection and the way you have displayed them ❤


Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and to let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
