DIY: Earrings

Earrings are a great accessory that could give your look an instant class – but sometimes, the store prices could be a bit steep. Worry not, though – if you want a great set of dress-up earrings at an affordable cost, you’ve come to the right place. This will be one of the easiest and most exciting DIY accessory project you’ve come across…

Here’s the step-by-step on DIY earrings from eHow.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Cardboard
  • Decoupage
  • Bezel Charms (two for every pair you make)
  • Earring hooks (two for every pair you make)
  • Paintbrush
  • Extra-fine glitter (any colour you like)
  • Glass glitter (any colour you like)
  • Bottle cap (or any other narrow containers)
  • Toothpicks (two)
  • Jewellery pliers



  1. Cover the work area with cardboard to keep it clean. Pour both kinds of glitter to the bottle cap, and mix them together with a toothpick.
  2. Using another toothpick, spread a small amount of decoupage over the bezel charms.
  3. Pour the glitter on top of the decoupaged bezel charms. Press the glitters with your finger.
  4. Shake off the extra glitter by turning the charms upside down and back.
  5. Use the paintbrush to apply another layer of decoupage on top of the glitters. Wait until it dries.
  6. Attach the earring hooks with pliers.



  • If you want to add extra bling to your earrings, use glitter decoupage.
  • For a jagged surface, use more glass glitter than the extra-fine one; for a flatter surface, do the reverse.
