I’m like jlee1834; I love wearing earrings but I always forget to! Check out this guide to constructing your own hanging earring display; she even used the leftover cardboard that came with her Carcassonne tiles!

    I’ve taken a rather elaborate old wood picture frame and put several coats of different color paint on it. Then sanded through to different layers in different places. You can then use a staple gun to attach fiberglass screen or copper mesh and hang the earrings on it. You can also string beading wire in a few horizontal lines from one side of the fram to the other to hang shepherd hooks on.

    Great suggestions, thanks!

    Very cool, but I need one that holds about 100 pairs!
