DIY Paper Flower Earrings

diy paper flower earrings diy flower earrings by eight and sixteen

Today's project is a quick and simple statement jewellery DIY perfect for adding a pop of colour to your outfit. Don't fancy paper jewellery? Upgrade this project by using leather scraps for the flowers instead!

You will need: 'paper blossoms' or a flower paper punch, two earring posts, matte Mod Podge, coloured nail polish, glaze, a blob of blu tack

1. Start by adding a little glue or matte Mod Podge to the back of your earring posts, then push on the paper flowers

2. Set aside to dry by standing up the posts in a blob of the blu tack or a piece of polystyrene packaging

3. Once dry I would advise coating the flowers with a layer or two of your matte Mod Podge to make them a little more durable

4. When the Mod Podge has dried use nail polish to colour the flat tops of the earring posts - these will be the centre of flowers

5. Once the polish is dry add layer of glaze and again leave to dry. Add on an additional layer of glaze if necessary and once dry they'll be ready to wear!

  1. Ahh, those are bloody cute. Such a versatile craft as well - not just as earrings. I'm intrigued and I might adapt it for other things since I'm not huge on earrings. Thanks for sharing <3

  2. This post is worthy of appreciation, looking forward to more exciting! swarovski Armband verkaufen
