The 5 minute earrings!

Hi everyone! 

 Today I want to share with you how to make the easiest.earrings.EVER.

 Here's some background info first....

 I don't wear earrings. Like, EVER. I have many holes in my ears, but I don't wear earrings anymore because I just feel WEIRD wearing them. Like I look funny. 

(I do, however, have my tragus pierced, but I've had those for years now, and don't consider them dressy earrings)

 Well, I want to branch out. Live on the wild side. Be fashionable, and wear earrings. But picky, I am. 

 So I'm going to share with you earrings that I made in 5 (yes, FIVE) minutes!

I took these cute little charms found in the jewelry dept at Michael's for $2.79 and a pair of ugly earrings that came with a necklace I bought awhile back.

 I took off the beads on the earrings, used a jump ring to attach the actual earring to each charm, and there it was! A gorgeous set of earrings for $2.79!

 When I wore them out and asked my boys how they looked, they laughed...HARD. They're just not used to seeing me with earrings. I'm very tomboyish when I'm not dressed up. But the longer I leave them in, the more I like them.

 Here's to a future in earrings!


  1. Cute, easy idea...and you look nice in them...I feel the same way about earrings. I wear little posts or small hoops and feel weird in dangles but I love them on everyone else!!!

  2. I like them---a lot!! I, too, have gotten away from wearing earrings, but I'm trying to make myself be more conscious of my appearance and try to occasionally get foundation, blush, lipstick, maybe even mascara (behind my glasses) on my face. I know I looked nicer when I did these small things, gotten out of the habit. You've inspired me, as did my jewelry-making, make-up wearing friend yesterday, LOL.
