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).
here’s what you’ll need:
- green yarn
- small pom pom maker, which you can buy at most craft stores
- fish hook earring pieces
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!
