Tutorial: Learn to make the EASIEST Earrings Ever!

4.05.2012

Welcome to the final day of the Handcrafted Easter Event here at Daydream Believers! :)
Easter is just days away, but don’t fret my friends, there is still time to create some very sweet jewelry that your little queen bee is sure to love! These dainty flower bud earrings will make a sweet addition to any girls Easter Basket! They are SO easy to make, I almost didn’t even write this tutorial; but, just incase you were wondering how to make those super popular cabochon earrings that are all over the stores – here’s the scoop!




Supplies:
Resin cabochons  (I used 10 mm)
Earring Posts and Ear Knuts (I used 6mm, silver plated posts)
Adhesive – (E-6000 is my fav for jewelry/beads/embellishments)


(These supplies are readily available at your local craft store, but I purchased my resins, earring posts, and earring backs from Snapcrafty  – This is a great shop to work with! Their prices and selection are excellent! Plus, Snapcrafty is based in Michigan! YEA for MI businesses!)

Instructions:

Step 1: Put a small dab of adhesive on the back of the resin
Step 2: Add the earring post to the back of the resin and set aside until the glue sets. Repeat for each earring.


Seriously ya’ll, that’s it!


Make them Easter-Basket-Ready by cutting a 2 inch flower shape from cardstock paper (you can use scissors or a craft punch – I used a 2” scallop punch). Using a tiny hole punch (or a sharp nail) add two holes to the center of the flower shape. Insert earrings, securing them in the back with the ear knuts. Place in a pretty plastic egg, and voila! A sweet, handcrafted gift for your little lady (or your sister/mother/best friend… queen bees of all ages love jewelry!)

If you make any earrings using this tutorial I would LOVE to see! Please share a picture on the Daydream Believers Facebook Page for your chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Daydream Believers shop! :)
