Quick Earring Storage

I love stud earrings. (Or are they called post earrings?) I have tons of them and they are one of my favorite things to make (and also to buy). I have always had a problem when it came to storing them however.

There are so many cute diys out there for earring storage, but most of them seem to be for the dangly variety. I've tried a couple different things for my stud earrings (cork boards, picture frames, ribbon, and even this complex thing I made out of cardboard and foam core), but none of them have worked perfectly. Finally the other day I came up with something so stupidly simple that I can't believe I didn't think of it before. Also, since I'm sure I'm far from the first person to think of this I don't know why I didn't come across it while I was scouring the internet for diy earring storage.

You will need:
6 sheets of craft felt
6 never sharpened pencils (or for larger drawers 6 wooden dowels)
glue gun
jewelry box drawer or a similar sized box (I thought about using one of the Beauty Bar Sample Society boxes I get every month)

I am not big on making permanent changes to things, since I'm constantly changing my mind, so this DIY is completely removable if you don't want it in your jewelry box forever.

Measure the width of your box and cut a piece of felt to fit. You will have to play around with the length of the felt depending on the size of your drawer. For mine, the craft felt I used was pretty thin, so the length ended up being almost 8 inches.

Next, put some hot glue along the length of the pencil and glue it to the edge of your felt.

Give the glue a couple seconds to dry, then roll up the felt around the pencil. Put a line of glue at the end of the felt to secure it. Do this 5 more times and place the felt rolls into your drawer.

Put in your earrings and you're done!
