I can't take credit for this idea, my crafty 5 year old came up with it. He noticed a package of tiny Dollar Store foam eggs that I recently purchased. He said we had to make earrings with them, and so we did. We love to craft together. These will make great frugal handmade Easter gifts. We hope you will give them a try!
1 package of tiny foam Easter eggs from Dollar Store
hook earring findings
plastic or glass pearl beads or metal bowl shaped beads
flat head pin jewelry findings
needle nose jewelry pliers
Use your sewing needle to carefully poke a hole down the center of egg. Place one bead on your flat head pin, then place your egg on, and a final bead. Use needle nose jewelry pliers to make a loop with remaining pin. Attach to your loop to the hook of the earring finding. Repeat for the second earring.
I like the ones with the metal beads best. If part of the egg chips when you poke a hole through it, don't worry, the bead will most likely hide it.
Frugal fashion fun!
Thank you little bunny for all your help!
