DIY: Nautical Earrings
Happy Fourth of July! Let’s welcome back Erin from Thanks, I Made It for a patriotic feeling DIY we can wear all-year long!
Hey TAGG-ers! Happy Fourth of July! With the season in full swing, I’m back with a 3-in-1 DIY project with a nautical and summery feel. They all are pretty much the same two steps– prep and glue! Be sure to hold down the earring backs firmly for several seconds when you glue them and let the glue dry completely before wearing (overnight, for good measure).
Also, a few tips on finding materials: The earring post backs
(you’ll also need the backs
to keep on your ears) and charms
can be found at most any jewelry store. The shells
came from my own collection, but you can get them at bead/craft stores. Finally, the frog closure (or knot cufflinks
) are from a sewing notions and fabric store. If you can’t find them in gold, you could aways paint them yourself. Now for the how-to, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Have fun and be sure to share with Alyson
if you make your own!
