Crochet Earrings



Yesterday in a post I shared with you how to make a pillow case dress/skirt.  Fabulous right, so many cute ways to wear it, and so inexpensive and easy to make.  Well in the pics I shared yesterday you may have spotted these pretty earrings.  I am so thrilled with how these turned out.  So cute and again easy.  All you need to do is be able to do a basic crochet chain that's it.

What you will need:

Yarn
Crochet Needle
Felt
Hot Glue
Earring Findings
Faux Pearl Beads
Scissors
Wire Cutters & Needle Nose Pliers


Earring Findings Pieces I used.

Crochet two chains the same length.  Roll them up like you were making a coiled snake.  Take a small piece of felt preferable a color similar to your yarn and put some hot glue down.  Place your earring binding down that you have already added two pearls to, on the hot glue and cover with your  rolled crochet yarn.  Trim off excess felt.  Decorate with another pearl if you like in center of crocheted flower.   That's it.  Of course you could skip the pearls all together if you wanted and just do the crocheted flowers.  I am planning on making a bunch  more in all different colors.  Since I make necklaces for my Etsy shop that match these nicely, they might even be added to the shop collection.
