Measure the area where you want to hang your earring holder display.
Find a strip of wood to use as the base of your earring organizer. It should be slightly wider than 23 mm so that there is a bit of space on either side of the wine corks.
Cut the strip of wood to the desired measurement, and sand and paint the wood strip as desired.
Drill holes for each of the wine cork pieces using the 20mm drill for most wine corks to about the depth of the drill bit. (You can adjust the size as needed.)
Cut the wine corks in half, and then cut each half into halves again. You will need one of these 1/4 cork pieces for each of the holes in the wood strip.
Press the cork pieces into the holes in the wood strip. Remove any excess cork with a blade.
Screw one eye screw into each side of the wood strip.
Screw L screws into either side of the area where you want to hang the earring display organizer. If you aren't sure about the width, screw one side in first and then mark the other side using the wood strip to guide you. (This method will also help you mark the hole in a way to make sure the earring holder will hang level.) This system is pretty forgiving because you have a little wiggle room.
Hang the earring display organizer by hooking the eye screws over the L screws.
Fill the display with earrings by pressing the posts into the corks.
I used the removable system of eye screws and L screws to hang my earring holder on the closet door because I find that it's convenient to be able to quickly remove it and bring it around with me as needed. Plus, I find it's easier to hang the earrings when I have the display rested on a table rather than when it is hanging vertically. You could choose to hang it in a more permanent way, though.If you are having a hard time pressing the earrings into the corks, use a pin back to make the hole before pressing the earring into it. If you use too much force to push the earrings into the corks, you could end up bending the posts.I leave the backs on the earrings when I press them into the corks. There is enough leftover post to press them into place securely without needing to remove them. That's one of the reasons I love this display because it conveniently lets you keep the earrings and backs together in a way that you can quickly grab your earrings!
