60 Second Earrings



Since we are a new crafting site I thought the first earrings I posted should be the easiest. These literally will take one minute to make. They are the perfect match to our Rockin' Hair Clips project. Make them using the same embellishments and you create a perfect gift set.

You will need:


6 mm Pierced Earring Posts (I bought my pack of 60 at Michaels for $2.99)
Earring backs
E6000 Glue
Embellishments: Refer to the project Rockin' Hair Clips  for ideas
Toothpicks


Place one drop of E6000 glue on the earring post. Use a toothpick to catch any extra glue off the sides.


Center the cabochon.

Place upright on cabochon or poke earring into a piece of styrofoam to hold in place while drying.


Allow to dry 24 hours.


Crystal Heart Earrings:


The hearts were found in the jewelry section at Michaels. They come on a strand.

Place drop of glue on earring post and center at the top of the heart on the flat angled part.


You can create an easy earring card by folding over a piece of scrapbooking paper and glue the flap down with tape runner.

  1. Cute and easy. I want to make a dozen of them!

    I love the earring cards, too. Know what would look really cool? Sparkly tape! I use it for my hula hoops, and you can get it at:

    identi-tape.com

    They sell glitter and mirror and sparkly tape. *Drools.* And just about every other kind of tape you would want.
