This week I was in the mood for something really cute and girly, so I thought of ribbons and pearls….. And started working on it…. after some trials I made these beautiful and girly earrings and in today’s post I will let you know how to make these adorable earrings in a really easy way…..!!
Do you like ribbon earrings? If your answer is yes, then you shall not miss this post, because it will show you how to make yourself a pair of lovely satin ribbon earrings with lustrous pearl beads. First of all, let’s have a look of the finished DIY ribbon earrings; they are so cute, aren’t they? Now let’s do it together.
(well I have to confess something. During the trial and error procedure with the ribbon I used up all the pink ribbon without realizing that I am not taking pictures for the tutorial….. So, for this tutorial I have repeated the process with a purple satin ribbon instead of the pink one…..!!! Hope you’ll like it…..!)
Materials you’ll need:
- Satin ribbon
- Pearl beads
- Flat back pearls
- Super glue
- Thin wire
- I pins
- Connecting chain
- Jump rings
- Earring hooks
- Jewelry pliers
How to Make DIY Satin Ribbon Earrings with Lustrous Pearl Beads:
Cut the satin ribbon in eight strands of length 1.5 inches each.
Apply some glue on the inside tip of the strands.
And make a petal shape by pressing the other end on the glued end as shown in the picture.
Now glue four petals together to make a ‘X’ shape as shown in the picture above.
Stick a flat back pearl at the center of the ‘X’ shape.
Now take the thin wire and loop it around within the petals.
Twist the wires together to secure.
Cut the excess wire.
Twist the excess wire and turn it inside the petals. (press it with the pliers so it does not peep out)
Pour the pearl bead in the I pin (I used a seed bead wrapped in the thin wire as I was short of I pins at that time) and attach it to the chain. I used one of my old anklet as the chain. You need to make one longer strand and one shorter strand as shown in the picture.
Now attach the pearl dangles to the jump ring.
And add the ‘X’ shaped satin ribbon petals with the help of the wire you poured within that and twisted.
It will look like this….
With the help of jump rings you just need to add the earring hooks to the wire just like you added the pearl dangles…..
It’s quite easy, right?
Bright colors are most suitable for summer, and pink can always make people look young and energetic. So just go out with your gorgeous DIY ribbon and pearl dangle earrings, show them to your friends and show your enthusiasm in the sunshine!
Hope you like it………!!
