DIY Earrings

DIY earrings are very easy to make and make wonderfully unique gifts.

DIY earrings are probably one of the fastest jewlery items to make if you want to produce lots of stock quickly to sell online.

And if you are using my brand new DIY earring paper bead strip stencil template, it’s even faster.

Watch my latest YouTube video to see this in action and to see how I use this week’s free printable.

My newest paper bead stencil template available in my Etsy & Folksy shops for making DIY earrings from paper beads

Before I get into the DIY earrings post…

I’d like to briefly introduce you to another paper bead crafter whose has a YouTube channel called Wokos Crafts.

Woko also makes cone beads, in a very different style to the ones I have made for this video.

Her beads are longer, slimmer and very elegant and ou can find out what materials she uses and how she makes her beads by visiting her YouTube channel.

She also sells her creations in her Etsy shop and there are some gorgeous pieces in there at very reasonable prices.

And now for these gorgeous earrings!

In my latest video, I show you how to make these earrings by using my new stencil for quickly drawing out cone bead strips without having to measure.

Turn plain card from this…
…to this.

In the same video, I also show you how to use my latest free bead strip printable.

If you want to make DIY earrings exactly like the ones above follow these instructions…

  • Make sure you print onto glossy photo paper
  • Be sure you use 180 gsm weight paper (approx 70lb in US weight) don’t use copier/plain paper or your beads will be dull and small.
  • Do use black marker along the side of the bead strip (see video if you aren’t sure what I mean)
  • Use a very glossy sealer (I use Mod Podge Dimensional Magic) to get a strong, glass like effect on your beads.
