DIY Thrifty Easy Christmas Gift Ideas #4 – Earrings made out of Paperclips

DIY Thrifty Easy Christmas Gift Idea #4 is how to make earrings out of paperclips.  These are so easy and so CUTE!!!  When I saw these over at Evie-s, I knew I had to make these for some Christmas presents.

What you will need:

  • 2 Paperclips
  • 2 Earring hooks and hoop
  • string or yarn
  • tacky glue or liquid stitch

What to do:

  • unfold the paperclips to where they are a triangle shape.  There will be the ends over lapping just a little but when you do the string,  it won’t show.
  • wind the string or thread all the way around the paperclip to cover the metal or the paperclip ( See Picture 1)
  • Start wrapping the paperclip from the string.  Use the glue to help hold the string when you are going around the curves  . (see picture 2)
  • Take your earring hoop and clamp it on the top of the triangle.
  • Attach the earring hook to the hoop

Whaa laaa.. .. you have some cute trendy earrings.    Just think you can do one of every color.  I am thinking maybe some metallic white thread to do a pair.

I think I will have to make a double pair of each one because I am going to want to keep a pair for myself.
