hello friends, st patricks day is tomorrow and if you haven’t had enough of pom poms yet, with your rainbow pom pom necklace, you’re in for a treat today! statement earrings are trending big time right now (you can see some examples on my post awhile back) and it turns out there you can create a pair for yourself with some scrap materials and a little creativity. after seeing them around i knew i had to make myself a pair (or twenty).

use your pom pom maker to make two full bodied poms in your green yarn. be sure to tie it together tightly!

next you’ll add the headpin. using pliers bend the straight end into an open v

loop the open v shape around the yarn that is holding the pom together then use the pliers to pinch it closed. simply loop the fish hook earring piece into the loop of the headpin and secure tightly.

and voila! you’re finished! honestly i was kind of surprised how quickly they were to make, up to 10 minutes probably! i really want to try experimenting with mixing different colored yarns in the same pom. what do you think??

if you’re in a pinch for green tomorrow and don’t get pinched (sorry, had to!) then whip up these fun earrings for a true bit of irish spirit. also, check out my diy st pattys sequin elbow patch sweater from last year for more fun!

once the poms are made open up the jump rings and loop them through the yarn that holds the pom together.

using the pliers i connected the poms to the chain, making sure they were evenly spaced. spacing them out evenly was honestly the most time consuming part!

diy leather and metal statement earrings

hey party people, remember back when i talked about how totally boss those trending statement earrings look? well today i’m going to show you how you can make your own – at a fraction of the cost! as someone who almost exclusively wears earrings i love all of the options you can create with just a few supplies.

materials

tools

here’s what you’ll need:

  • leather scraps
  • thin gauge metal, similar
  • earring posts and backs, nickel-free for sensitive ears
  • variety jump rings
  • E6000 glue
  • templates (optional)
  • leather punch or crop-a-dile
  • pliers
  • embroidery thread, for optional tassels

the process is pretty simple, use a template or freehand draw shapes and cut them out. i used a thinner gauge metal which made it so easy to cut with scissors. use a leather punch or a crop-a-dile to then punch holes where you wanted to connect two shapes. play the sizes of jump rings for a different look! i used two sets of pliers to help pinch them together. i also added tassels on a few of mine for some more texture and color.

to attach the earring posts i used e6000 glue and let set for about an hour or so. just attach the backs and you’re done! it’s seriously so easy and you can make yourself tons of sets of earrings in a short amount of time. they could also make really cute gifts for your gal pals, galentine’s day is coming up ya know!
