lace trim earrings


i just have to say that i have not had so much fun crafting in a long time!

i was in heaven making these earrings from lace trims.


<span class=

i was SO excited to try them on and see how they looked.

absolutely darling!
i just love them!

<span class=

all you need is:

a bunch of ribbons

lot's of different lace trims

a glue gun

<span class=

and these ball hook earrings

these are sterling silver and work so great for sensitive ears.

<span class=

1. cut out your lace trim

<span class=

2. take some pliers and open the ball on your earring. ( i have a tiny little set of 3 jewelry pliers i got at joanns for like $6. they work great!)

3. take the end of your pliers or a pin and make a hole in your lace trim where you will want your lace trim to hang from.

4. put your earring through the hole.

5. close your earring ball to secure the lace.

<span class=

make two bows out of your ribbon and hot glue them to your lace trim.

that's it!

<span class=

here are a bunch of lace trims that i cut out.

<span class=

then i tied a bunch of bows and matched them to trims i thought suited them best.
then went to town making them.

my husband thought i was upstairs cleaning.

but i was really going to town on these babies!

that's how i do it ladies.

i am sneaky.

i took this lace trim...

<span class=

and turned it into these.

<span class=

this lace trim...

<span class=

and turned it into these!

it was so much fun!

<span class=

this red ribbon reminds me of a picnic.

it's one of my favorites.

<span class=

the black and white stripped ribbon and the small lace trim rosettes are a little too darling for me to handle!

<span class=

i thought i would try some black lace trim and was thrilled with how they turned out.

the white ribbon with the black edging fit pefectly with these earrings.

<span class=

the cream lace with the brown and cream ribbon are so pretty!

<span class=

these were the first ones i made, and i was so excited with how they turned out!

these dainty little earrings remind me if tiny doilies. i love how they hang on!

<span class=

do you think i have enough lace trim earrings!?

holy crap what is my husband going to say!!??

<span class=

make these earrings!

every time i do a project like this i get comments and emails asking if i will put some in my etsy shop and i just never do.

so this time i am actually going to give it a try.

i can't promise to restock them though...i will probably just sell them for a couple of days.

head over to my etsy shop if you have to have some of these earring.

They are so lovely! I didn't think that lace trim could be a great jewelry. I might also use them in making some hair accessories. Thanks for the wonderful idea.

I am truly inspired! Got to rush out and see what I can find in the fabric store. I can see why you enjoyed making them - they are super feminine. I will link in a future post so others can come visit. Pearl
