I just bought some earring-making supplies last week so I decided to make sequin heart earrings. The tutorial is obviously heavily influenced by the two aforementioned projects, but I figured I’d show you how I did it.
I drew a heart on some card stock scraps and cut it out to use as a template.
Then I cut out two hearts from some scraps of red felt I already had (leftover from my sewn Valentines !)
I hot-glued strings of red sequins to each of the hearts, making sure to cover the entire felt piece. I just went in a random zig-zag design, since the pieces were so small.
When both hearts were done, I attached the earring backs. First I added a jump ring onto each earring back, and then I hot-glued the jump ring to the back of the heart, covering it up with a smaller piece of felt to keep it secure. I’m sure there’s a better way to do this, but it was my very first time making jewelry!
Et voila! The earrings are done!
And in case you’re curious about what my ear lobe looks like, here’s the earring in action:
