When my daughter, who had recently had her ears pierced, saw Pebbles' Candy Dots Crystals embellishments, she thought they would make lovely earrings. After rounding up a couple of basic earring supplies at the craft store, we made DIY earrings with embellishments.
DIY Earrings with Embellishments
With only a few basic crafting and common jewelry supplies, it is easy to make your own stud earrings.
Not that I'm taking a huge mystery out of making earrings, but here are a few simple steps I took to make DIY earrings out of scrapbooking embellishments:
- Gather supplies, including embellishments, earring studs, and adhesive. I used E-6000 for this project because it works well when adhering metal to metal.
- Apply a bit of adhesive to the earring stud and adhere the embellishment. NOTE: Remove the sticky back on the embellishment first.
- Allow earrings to dry/set standing straight up. I placed my earrings in a foam piece that holds brads. It worked perfectly!
You could make earrings using all sorts of fun embellishments. I also like that they are really inexpensive making it a non-stressful event when they get lost on the playground.
