Two of the best things about knowing how to make your own earrings, is that you can customize them any way you wish and you can save yourself money in the process. A great way to make new earrings is to create them from items you already have in your home. Since spring is coming, you can make a pair of flower shaped earrings to celebrate the season.
What you’ll need:
- Jump rings
- Earring hooks
- Patterned paper
- Needle nose pliers
- Mod Podge
- Small hole punch
Step 2. Draw two flowers onto the back of the cardboard, then use the scissors to cut them out.
Step 3. Use a small hole punch to make a hole on the edge of one petal.
Step 4. Choose any size jump rings you wish; I opted for the larger ones. To pry open the jump rings, use needle nose pliers.
Step 5. Hook the open jump ring through the hole in the petal. Before closing the ring, attach an earring hook to the jump ring, then use the pliers to choose the ring.
Step 6. Use any color marker you wish to color in the center of the flowers.
