Here is my method for making two dozen earrings from a sheet of watercolor paper! It’s a great process if you need promo items or don’t have a lot of money to spend on fancy supplies. We’re talking old school crafting! Paper, paint and glue!
I love to make these for events or for store orders.
For this batch, I used Frida images because I made these for a Phoenix Frida event giveaway. Normally, I would use my own images/artwork.
– Pictures cut in 1-inch circles
– Scissors (or electronic cutting machine)
– White craft glue
– Earring hooks
– Needle nose pliers
1. Paint a sheet of watercolor paper with acrylic paint, watercolors, spray paint or even markers. Let dry and paint the other side.
2. You can use a circle template to draw and then cut out the 1.5-inch circles, or if you have an electronic cutting machine like me, use that.
4. Use a 1-inch punch or a circle maker to cut out pictures.
5. Glue the pictures on the paper circles.
6. Add painted embellishments.
7. Add varnish if desired.
8. Use a thick safety pin to poke a hole at the top of each circle and add the earring hook.
Variations: – Instead of gluing pictures, use pens to draw designs on the circles. – Paint designs all over the watercolor paper before cutting. – Instead of watercolor paper, recycle old concert postcards, the heavy glossy kind work best! – You can also use cereal boxes, any lightweight paper or cardboard!Love & light,
