Crafty Creations: Cheese Grater Earring Stand

Crafty Creations: Cheese Grater Earring Stand

Have you ever taken an unexpected object and given it a new purpose? In my newest Crafty Creations video, I do just that. I was inspired to create a jewelry holder that displays your earrings so you don’t have to keep your pretty baubles hidden away in a jewelry box. Watch my video below to see how you can transform a basic kitchen item into a beautiful display for your favorite jewels and gems:

You can personalize your earring stand by spray-painting it a color that goes well with your bathroom or bedroom decor. This craft is so easy–it’s definitely worth a try.

To recap, here’s what you will need:

  • cheese grater
  • spray-paint primer
  • spray-paint

Also, it’s very important to do this DIY in a well-ventilated area or outside since the fumes from the spray paint are very strong and can be dangerous.
Are you going to give this DIY a try?
I’d love to see what you come up with. Upload a photo of your earring stand to your profile and paste the link in the comments below.

Be sure to check out the Crafty Creations section of my website for more decor ideas. Happy crafting!

XO Lauren

    I love this!! I had seen it on pinterest but I hadn’t tried and you made it look so simple I just might have to now :)

    I actually love turning household items into accessory organizers (i.e. napkin holder into a bracelet holder), I wrote about it here:

  • Patty CatCake

    This is such a cute idea. I need to give it a try!!!

    I just redecorate all my earrings, necklaces and bracelets and used a nice ribbon to hang it on my wall above my vanity table.


  • Susanna Hall

    Haha when I saw the email link to this, I thought it said “”cheese grater earing strand”” and I was like, I wonder what these earrings will look like. Stand makes so much more sense, and what a creative idea!

  • Carol F

    Love that color! I used the same one to refinish my bedroom dresser.

  • Kelby Peachey

    awesome idea! You posted this video just in the right time :-) When i came back from vaca i sadly had to say goodbye to my jewelery box (the mirrors are kaput thanks to the people who throw luggages over luggages :( at the airport)

  • mac

    Suce a cute idea! Just wondering if anyone has any ideas about somehow wearing down the “”grater”” bits so that they’re not sharp? Sandpaper would just shred, I’m sure…. any thoughts?

  • Tiffani Stuart

    Wouldn’t your scrape your hands trying to put the studs in and out? Or maybe the sharp part is on the outside & the inside is smooth?

    • Rachel

      That’s what I was thinking. Ouch

  • Amanda Kretchmer

    Love these! Another great idea.

  • Linh Ly

    I love this idea and have in fact done it. I also tried a few other crafty jewelry storage/display ideas off this list. Particularly like the idea of using ceramic egg crates for earing.
