DIY Snowman Earrings
I am so excited to share all of my Winter crafts I have been working on. I must admit, I have been a craft junkie recently. I just love Christmas crafting.Why don't we start with these snowman earrings. You don't need to wait for Christmas to wear these little guys. It is already snowing here in Northern Cali. So why not wear a pair of snowman earrings.
Here is what you need for this easy project:
Faux pearls in 4 different sizes
Small clear beads
Black scrap fabric
Black permanent marker
Earring findings (like pictured below)
Needle nose jewelry pliers
First place one small clear bead on your long earring finding (this small bead will keep the larger pearl bead from falling off). Then add three pearl beads, largest to smallest. Then add a small circular scrap of black fabric. Next add your smallest pearl bead, that you will later color black with marker. Trim with wire cutters if needed any excess metal, leaving only enough room to make a small loop with your needle nose pliers. Before pinching shut your loop, attach to the loop on your earring finding. To finish your dangling snowman earrings, color the top pearl for the hat black. Then add eyes, smile, and buttons with the marker as well to the head of your snowmen. Optional, use an orange permanent marker to make a small carrot nose.
These are fun to wear during the colder months, and make great ladies stocking stuffers or party favors too.
