I chose to hack the MACKAPÄR into an earring holder because I have a very large earring collection. I wanted something minimalist and removable. The cost was under $20.
IKEA item used:
- MACKAPÄR Shoe Rack
Other tools and materials:
- Screw in L hooks
- Wall plugs
Instructions for large DIY earring holder:
Use the shoe plates in the MACKAPÄR, legs are not necessary. I mounted them horizontally and used the small holes on the side.
Ensure the L hooks fit the small holes on the side (see picture). If they do not, enlarge with the drill.
I mounted mine to drywall so wall plugs were required. Drill holes in the wall, knock in the wall plugs and screw in the L hooks.
The hardest part was matching the hook length and strength with the hole size. Similar hooks could work well. And if it being removable is not important, then the earring holder could be screwed directly to the wall.
