I am participating in the Craft Lightning Series hosted by Angie at the Country Chic Cottage and Carolina at 30 Minute Crafts. This month we are sharing Halloween crafts that take 15 minutes or less to make!
When I think of Halloween, the first thing that comes to mind is pumpkins! I thought it would be fun to create some pumpkin earrings to wear on Halloween.
Beaded Pumpkin Earrings
Supplies needed (affliate links):
- Gold head pins
- Gold fish hook earrings
- Seed beads (2 orange and 4 green)
- (2) Orange faceted beads
- Round nose pliers
- Wire cutter
Step one: Add your beads to your head pin. Start with the orange seed bead, then the orange faceted bead, then two green seed beads.
Note: Some seed beads are smaller than others. Be sure to check that your seed beads are not going inside the larger, faceted bead.
Step two: Bend your head pin wire at a 90 degree angle with your round nose pliers.
Step three: Wrap your wire around your round nose pliers to create a loop.
Trim excess with wire cutter.
Step four: Open the loop on your fish hook earrings.
Attach your beaded headpin. Close the loop on the fish hook.
Jewelry making can seem very intimidating, but with a few simple tools and supplies you can create so many fun pieces.
