Since getting my ears pierced, I’ve started looking for ways I can add to my earring collection without breaking the bank. When I saw Evie S’s earrings I knew I had to make my own version…heart shaped earrings from a paper clip. These are perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up or just for a fun accessory on a random day :)
The best part of these earrings? They are made from a paper clip and thread…things almost everyone has lying around!
Once dry, wrap your thread around the paper clip…and around, and around and around…you get the point. If you run out of thread, just tie some more on and clip the ends close to the knot. When you have gone all the way around the paper clip put a dab of glue on the thread in the same spot where you began and let that dry. Take the remainder of the thread and wrap it around the paper clip heart randomly like below…
I took some Mod Podge and “painted it” around the paper clip to keep all of the random threads in place especially since my boys love touching my earrings. Attach earring hooks and wear your new fashion accessory with pride…especially knowing how much you paid for it :)
