I am loving this super cute DIY Earring Holder!
A friend made this up for me and I just love it! I have to be honest and admit that I am not sure I would have come up with using a cheese grater for an earring holder but I just love it.
I have been struggling with finding a way to store my earrings in a cute way that didn’t take up a ton of room or just look plain ugly. This DIY Earring holder is just plain perfect.
Purple Upcycled Jewelry Holder Materials –
Old cheese grater, cleaned – The one pictured was found at the local thrift store for only $0.25!
Spray paint in the color of your choice. I highly suggest Rust-o-leum because it typically contains a primer and color so it’s all-in-one and super easy to use – about $4-$5 at major retailers and tons of colors to choose from.
Lay down some old newspaper or an old sheet in a well ventilated area such as a garage. Evenly spray your paint over one side of the cheese grater evenly coating it with paint. (see photo)
Allow to dry several hours.
Spray the paint over it evenly again giving it a second coat. Allow to dry completely – even overnight if you have the time. I’m always picky about my projects and like giving them ample time to dry because if they chip or smudge it’s very frustrating.
Once you’ve painted the front of your grater repeat with the back side evenly coating it and then allowing it to completely dry before giving it another coat.
That’s it! Super easy and a really quick DIY gift!
Anyone else really excited to make one of these DIY Earring holders?
