Cotton Candy Earrings

As a kid, I’d have a huge ear-to-ear grin on my face while munching on a stick of cotton candy.  There was something so irresistible about the deliciously fluffy, sweet and sticky candy clouds on a stick.  I wanted to make a pair of earrings that captured the essence of cotton candy and after a bit of brainstorming, I finally came up with an idea.

Pom Poms

I bought a package of neon pom-poms  a few months ago, with no particular project in mind.  They kept staring at me in the face, just begging to be made into something, until I finally thought of it: earrings.  These earrings resemble the fluffy stick of cotton candy that made me smile as a kid.

I know that creating earrings out of pom-poms isn’t unique nor is it innovative, but it sure is fun, kind to the wallet and so totally funky.

Pink cotton candy with a stick… how sweet!

Cotton candy in my favorite color

I simply glued an earring post to the back of lime green pom-poms to make a pair of cotton candy earrings in my favorite color.

DIY Beachy Dream Catcher

The lace of the doily along with the shells and drift wood will hopefully produce good dreams of the summer ahead. This project would be great for after your vacation, picking up items from the beach to make the craft. This could also be a gift for a friend with a beach house.

Ribbon Keychain Bracelet

This little project is a great idea for any driver in your life. A loop to hold on to or slip over your wrist is one of the easy ways to carry your keys. This could be a great party favor for a Sweet Sixteen party with all of the new drivers in attendance or a even a great project to make for the Dad that has everything.

Felt Flower Pin

Pretty flowers are in bloom everywhere, now you can add them to your wardrobe! It’s easy to make these soft felt flowers and by adding a pin back they can be worn with any outfit. This is a perfect craft for summer camps!  I thought adding a pin back made this flower a cute gift for my grandmother, but they could also be placed on hair clips or headbands, maybe even a bracelet.
