Felt Bow Earrings DIY - Lindsey From Hello Hydrangea!

Last week I had the pleasure of stumbling across the most darling blog.  Hello Hydrangea!  You are immediately greeted by the most darling of blog faces before becoming enveloped in a world of creative beauty!  If you haven't had the delightful tour of Hello Hydrangea, you must, it's a wonderful beautiful little world.

Lindsey has a special treat for us fit for a Countessa!   Felt Bow Earrings & in my favorite color ever!  I'll let Lindsey take it from here!


Meet Lindsey!

With most of my blog posts, I begin with an inspiration. I found the inspiration for these cute earrings in the form of the girl standing next to me in line at the Post Office. You never know when or where you will find something great! 

This project is easiness. All you need are:

♥ 2 earring posts 
♥ Round-nose pliers
♥ Some wire
♥ 2 pieces of felt at 1" x 1.5"
♥ 2 pieces of felt at 1" x 1/4"
♥ 2 dangling items of choice (pearls, lockets, hearts!)
♥ Needle
♥ Thread

1. Thread your needle and weave it through a 
big piece of felt (hamburger style) five times



2. Pull the folds of the flet together to make crinkles. 
Then hot glue the ends of a small piece of felt and 
wrap it around the middle so that it creates the band.


3. Make a post and ring out of wire - about half an 
inch long. on one side, attach the earring post.


4. After making two jump rings from wire and sliding them through the top and bottom of the band, attach the earring post. Then attach the dangling item of choice.


Repeat step 1-4 for the other earring!


There you go!


Lindsey

  11. So cute inspiration ! I need to start making my own jewellery more often, it's so fun. I have equipment, but somehow there seems not to be enough time or energy. Maybe it's because of winter season, all days gloomy. :)

    Thanks for your comment dear! Have a lovely sunday night, and beginning of new week
