These really are incredibly simple to make - all you need is lace, some stiffener and hooks! For a bit of colour you can add paint in colours or metallics (like in the bottom two pics) or plain white in the top pic. This way you can make earrings to match any outfit you have! If you’re feeling adventurous, you could even add some beads or tassels to take them to the next level!
Polymer clay is such a versatile product, but my favourite use for it is to make jewelry. You can make so much out of it and there are so many gorgeous colours! That’s why I jumped on this fab DIY and it’s combo of clay and dripping gold chain. Fun and flirty!
From first glance can you work out what the pink fringe of these earrings are made from? I thought it was ribbon - but no, it’s raffia! I’m obsessed with these sweet, boho-chic earrings! And even better, they’re quite simple to make. In pink, blue, purple, green…
When I had my stall, the most popular items were my cabochon studs. They were the first things to sell and people kept asking for more! The lovly thing about them is that there are tons of colours and sizes available, meaning you can get a pair to match most outfits. I love the added glitz of the rhinestone surround, it makes these earrings even more fun. This tutorial also shows you how to make your own cabochons which though might be a bit expensive to start with (i.e. getting a mold, sculpey, etc) I’m sure that you will end up using it and making tons of them in no time!
Fringe Earrings | The Alison Show
I’ve often seen these little clampy earring bits (I don’t know what the name is sorry!) while looking through the jewelry section of the craft store but have been confused as to what I can actually do with them. Well here is the perfect DIY! There are so many pretty colours of fringe (if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know how much I love trim!) and there’s even that fringe with the little beads on it - so many cool options. And unlike other big dangly earrings, these won’t be super heavy on your lobes!
Clear Earrings | Love Aesthetics
These might not be for everyone but these incredibly modern earrings certainly make a statement! You do need to use a drill but it’s a skill that is great to have. If you don’t want to have the rectangle shape a triangle shape would also look great!
Colourblock Earrings | Delighted Momma
I love any DIY project that uses thread because I love spending time picking out colours! I went to a larger Spotlight than my normal one the other day and I also discovered… metallic thread! Woo! It costs more than the normal threads but it looks gorgeous in projects. I’m going to make these earrings for my sister’s upcoming birthday.
Tassle Knot Chain Earrings | Glitter N Glue
Guys, confession time. I still haven’t gotten my ears pierced. I know, I know, I’m a wuss! But, I have discovered the amazing power of magnets! Haha, no I’m not going to sell you anything. Other than on the amazing power of magnets! Ok. So after seeing that post by Runway DIY on the horn earrings using the magnets I bought some of my own and it’s amazing - they actually work. You do need to get the super strong ones though. After seeing these earrings I want to try making these and trying it on the magnets, though I don’t know if it would be too heavy. I’m going to get some little earrings tomorrow when I go shopping and stick to one of them. Maybe I’ll do the world’s easiest DIY on how I did them too if anyone is interested!
Givenchy Horn Earrings | Runway DIY
When I first saw this tutorial I thought - how does she do that? Surely it would make a giant hole in your ear?! The answer is: magnets! These are super cool. And of course if you want faux horn, you could make them in white. In fact, making earrings with magnets suddenly opens up a whole new world of what you can do - much more comfortable than clip on earrings. You could even purchase a studded pair you like and swap the pin our for magnets. No pain, all gain!
Holiday Tassle Earrings | In Honor Of Design
I’m finally getting my ears pierced again tomorrow (unless I chicken out again. The first time was traumatic!) and I can’t wait to start wearing earrings! I really love tassle earrings and these ones have the added glitz of the glass bead.
Paper Clip Earrings | With One Hand Waving Free
When I saw ‘paper clip earrings’ I thought… mmm. Dodgy. I was wrong! These are so pretty! And super easy to make too! These would be really nice Christmas presents - buy some scrapbook paper and attach the earrings for presentation. Wrapping with thread that is very similar in colour would be really pretty, like an ombre effect!

Day 5: If You Like Her Then You Should Make A Ring For Her
OK, so I’m getting a bit nuts for the craft round up names, but tonight’s round up is all about the bling! I’ve gone through the archives to find my favourite bits and pieces to adorn your friends.
Edit: Yikes, those links were all kinds of messed up! Should be all good now!
Wrapped Hoop Earrings | I Spy DIY
You probably remember this wrapping style from a previous post where they wrapped a necklace. When I saw these hoops it was like - of course! Why didn’t I think of that!? They look gorgeous with this style - how cool would it be to have a stack of wrapped earrings to match whatever outfits you have?! And seriously, there are a million different colours of cotton skein. You should be able to get diamante chain like this from craft stores or online.
X-Acto & Runway DIY | Runway DIY
Runway DIY is one of my favourite fashion DIY websites and I love every project she posts. For this post she’s paired up with X-Acto to create these two DIY projects. The earrings are made from printer paper! Maybe you won’t get a ton of wear out of them but they’re so pretty! You could maybe try thin plastic if you wanted them a little longer. The second is a nail polish DIY, which you know I’m a sucker for!
