3 Easy DIY Earrings for Spring

hi-guys

So I’m not one to brag, but I guess you could say that I’m something of an earring connoisseur. My obsession began about four years ago when my mother innocently suggested I get my ears pierced one day, unwittingly laying the foundations for what has developed into a full-fledged jewelry addiction.

With Easter break coming up, I figured it’s the perfect time to get crafting and conveniently find an excuse to expand my forever growing earring collection. All these DIYs are perfect for spring time and can easily be personalized to suit everyone’s individual style!

While these beaded earrings are a little time consuming to make, I was so happy with the end result! I went for a simple green design, but you could definitely get creative and mix up colours and patterns.

All you need to make these are some beads, strong thread and earring hooks. Cut a few lengths of thread (I used two per earring) and thread them through the earring hooks. Tie a knot so that the hooks are secured midway up the length of thread. Then, just start beading (a little tedious, but it’s worth it) and tie a couple of knots at the bottom of each string to make sure the beads don’t fall off. Snip of the any end bits of dangling thread at the ends and your done!

I’m all for unique, quirky fashion statements, so I’m in love with these artsy collage earrings! They’re also a great way for recycling old earrings that you don’t wear anymore, which is always a plus.

To make them, you need an old magazine, PVA glue, a paintbrush and flat, circular earrings. Just tear up the magazine into little shreds, until you’ve got a range of colourful paper scraps. Then, glue the paper onto each earring to form a nice collage – making sure to finish it all off with a final coat of glue to seal it all in.

Aren’t these tassel earrings chic? They only took a few minutes to make and would add a splash of colourful glamour to any outfit!

To make them, you’ll need some black and yellow thread and earring hooks. Wrap the black thread around your two fingers about 30 times, then attach the top part of the loop to the earring hook. Cut the bottom part of the loop so that the thread is dangling freely. Now, wrap the yellow thread around the black thread and secure it with a knot to form the tassel.

. . .

That’s all I have for you guys today. Make sure to comment below letting me know which earring was your favourite and what other DIYs you’d like to see over the Easter break!

    I find the best old jewelry to take apart and remake at church thrift shops! It can become an obsession! Have you thought about doing live classes at the library or girls youth center?

    So cute. I’m an earring fan too. I’ve got some really unique ones. Have you ever worked with a different hook? Lobster clasp or post?

      No, I’ve actually only just started earring making, but I’ll definitely be trying out some new hooks in the future! 🙂
