Yarn Earrings

These yarn earrings are a fun, quick project that make an excellent gift for a knitter in your life.



Cut two toothpicks in half. These will be your “knitting needles”.


While holding the two toothpick halves in an X shape, wind the yarn around them until you form a ball. My yarn balls are the size of nickels.


Coat the yarn ball with tacky glue.


After making two yarn balls, set aside to air dry partially. The jump rings will be easier to work into the yarn if the glue is not completely dried.


Using jewelry pliers, work a jump ring into the yarn ball.


Before closing, place an earring hook onto the ring.


Let earrings air dry.

Using a finger nail file, sand down the toothpick points so they won’t poke the neck.

Now you have a unique gift that your knitter will surely love!

About Stephanie

Hello everyone. I’m Stephanie and I’m so happy to be the Yarn and Needlework contributor for Think Crafts. A friend taught me to crochet back in 2000 and I’ve been hooked on fiber crafts ever since. Knitting soon followed, then spinning, needle felting and sewing joined the team. I love making my own clothes and home accessories. Making clothes from thrift store finds is one of my passions. Creating fun monsters out of sparkly yarn is my current obsession. I blog about my crafty creations and belly dancing at Twillight Kallisti.
