Did you know March is National Craft Month? It is! And to help you get in the crafty spirit I thought I would show you how to make some pretty floral wooden circle earrings which if you still aren’t getting much Spring-like weather at least these will make you feel more Spring-y! And to help you out even more, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores is offering a $5 off $25 or more purchase coupon and a spring crafting inspiration website to get you started. Why, hello Spring! It’s nice to meet you!
These earrings are super simple to make. If you have never made your own jewelry these are great to make and get your feet wet. And if you are a more advanced jewelry maker you can up the ante on these babies by adding more wooden circles and jump rings to get all sorts of crazy designs!
Alright, so let’s get started! Here’s what you’ll need:
Floral Wooden Circle Earrings
Wooden Circle Cut-outs
Floral scrapbook paper of your choice
1″ earring fish hooks
7mm and/or 10 mm jump rings
Drill with 1/8 inch bit
I found a whole bag of wooden circle cut-outs at Jo-Ann stores with a pretty nice variety of sizes to really make all sorts of fun earring styles. You’ll also need 1″ fish hooks and jump rings. I found I liked the 10 mm and 7 mm best for the 1/4 inch thick wood circles. Now for the fun part! Picking out the circle sizes you would like for your earrings! Once you figure out how you would like your earrings to look, trace those wood circles on to the back of your scrapbook paper and cut them out using your x-acto knife. Then grab your mod podge and a brush a coat onto the bare wood, place a circle of scrapbook paper (right side up) and press down. Then coat the paper with a layer of mod podge and let dry for about 20 minutes. Once dry, add a second coat of mod podge and let dry again. Then flip to the other side and do the same thing.
Once your floral circles are finished, grab your drill and 1/8 inch drill bit and drill a small hole near the top of each wood circle. If your scrapbook paper has a particular orientation make sure you take this into account before you make your hole! Then either by using your fingers or a small pliers you can thread your jump rings and then the fish hooks through the wooden circles.
PS Duuude! Do you see my purple hair!!! It’s lightening up a little but man, it’s been fun having. I’m debating what color I should do next…red? Pink? Blue? I hope you enjoy this fun Spring craft and make yourself a whole bunch of fun new floral earrings! Floral is so on trend right now so you will be so cool!
