Easy And Frugal Baby Chick Earring Tutorial For Spring
I pride myself on bringing my followers unique tutorials, especially when it comes to jewelry making, since that's sort of my bag baby. No I have no idea why I am channeling Austin Powers this morning. Maybe it's because these earrings are so fluffy, fun, silly, and utterly perfect for Spring. Did I mention how inexpensive they are to make? I didn't do the exact math, but I will say 16 fake baby chicks from the Grocery Outlet cost me only 99 cents, plus tax. The compare price was $1.99. That's enough to make 8 pairs of earrings. Even adding the cost of jewelry glue, earring findings, jump loops, and bails, these are fluffy frugal fun. Below you will find a material list, and instructions to help you make your own.
2 Miniature Baby Chicks
2 Jewelry Bails (I used flower shaped ones for Spring)
2 Jump Loops
2 Earring Hook Findings
What came first the chicken or the egg? Actually they both came at the same time, since they were both purchased at the Grocery Outlet ;)
Glue your bails to the back of your chicks and let dry per glue package directions. You could use hot glue too, however it doesn't last as long. Once completely dry, using jewelry pliers, attach your jump loops to the loops on the bails, and the loops on your hook earring findings. Close loops with pliers, and that's it.
Their so fluffy!!!!
