If you’re a huge fan of comics, why shouldn’t you make them part of your wardrobe? Of course you can showcase the designs on shirts, but it would be much more interesting to wear them as jewelry. These comic book earrings are easy to make and would add a unique touch to your outfit.
What you’ll need:
- Comic book pages
- Circle punch
- Small hole punch
- Two jump rings
- Two earring hooks
- Needle nose pliers
- Mod Podge
Step 1. Choose comic book pictures that you want to use as designs for your earrings.
Step 2. Using Mod Podge, attach the images to cardstock, then carefully flatten them down removing all the air bubbles.
Step 3. Put Mod Podge over the front of the images as a sealant. Try to do it as quick as possible so as to not leave fingerprint marks in the glue.
Step 4. After the earrings dry, use the circle punch to cut out two circles.
Step 5. Use the small hole punch to make a small hole at the top of each circle.
Step 6. Use the needle nose pliers to slightly pry open the jump rings, then loop one through each hole.
Step 7. Loop the end of an earring hook through each jump ring, then use the needle nose pliers to close the jump rings.
