Crafty Monday: How to make Dangly Doll Earrings!!!

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had a great weekend!!! For today's craft we will be making dangly earrings that attach onto the posts of AG earring studs for dolls with pierced ears.  Here is what you will need...

  • Paper twist ties or beading wire
  • Beads
  • AG earring studs
  • Scissors and/or needle nose pliers

Gather your supplies!!! Paper twist ties are basically wire between two pieces of paper. They do make plastic covered or coated ones, so try to find some that are paper.

I didn't take a picture of this step but I got my twist ties wet and pulled the paper off to get my wire. I also used my scissors to cut some paper off. If you have beading wire skip this step and cut two equal pieces.

Fold both pieces in half, slide the folded part onto the post, tighten it, and wrap the ends around a couple times for stability.

All wrapped up!! :)

The next part is completely up to you. String on your beads and and secure them on the wire. I made mine into a square shape by twisting the wires and squishing it into place. You can do whatever you want to make your earrings unique!!!  Once you have finished be sure to do something with the ends of the wires as they are VERY SHARP. After twisting the two wires together at the bottom I tucked the ends back into the beads.

I love these custom earrings!! When you are finished just slide them off the posts and store them somewhere where the holes for the posts will not be crushed!!! ;)

I hope you enjoyed making this craft!!! 
Tomorrow we have a very cute photo story for you so be sure to stop by tomorrow!!!
Thanks for reading!!!
