Make the Cutest Easter Earrings You've Ever Seen

Heidi from Hands Occupied here! I made a set of Easter Egg-inspired earrings to share with you all today. They come together pretty quickly and are a fun way to make use of scrap ribbon you might have laying around. And who doesn’t love a good Easter craft?

DIY Easter Earrings

Gather These Supplies

  • Oval Shapes – 2, either wood, or we used clear acrylic
  • 2 Earwires
  • 2 7-mm Jump Rings
  • Jewelry Pliers
  • Pencil
  • Ric Rac
  • Thin Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Matte Mod Podge
  • Paintbrush
  • Glitter Dimensional Magic
  • Acrylic Paint (optional, if you used wood)
  • White Paper (optional, if you used acrylic shapes)

Directions

If you decide to use wood shapes, paint them with acrylic paint in the color of your choice and let dry.

Earring shapes traced onto paper

For the acrylic shapes, begin by tracing them on some white paper with a pencil. Cut them out, removing all pencil lines and cutting a little dip in the top of each paper oval to accommodate the hole at the top of the shape.

Paint a layer of Mod Podge onto each acrylic shape, and place the paper cutouts on each. Paint another layer of Mod Podge over the top. Let dry completely.

Once dry, flip the shapes over (or start with the painted wood shapes). Cut two pieces of ric-rac to fit across the middle of each shape.

Cut four pieces of thin ribbon (I used purple) to fit across the shape above and below the ric-rac.

Next, paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the blank or painted side of the shape.

Place your ric-rac and thin ribbon as shown, and then cover all of it with another layer of Mod Podge. Again, let dry completely.

The last step is applying your glitter Dimensional Magic. I have a few tips regarding glitter Dimensional Magic. The glitter settles at the bottom of the bottle.

You’ll want to take advantage of the flat-topped lid by letting it stand upside down for 10 or 15 minutes. This lets the glitter shift so it’s better mixed throughout the bottle.

If you can’t find glitter Dimensional Magic, you can use regular Dimensional Magic. You can add glitter or just leave it clear.

To avoid bubbles on your finished project, prime your Dimensional Magic bottle by squeezing some out onto a test surface. Then, fill in each earring with a layer of Dimensional Magic.

If any bubbles do make it onto your earrings, you can pop them with a sharp needle or scoop them out. Let your earrings dry for 24 hours.

When they’re totally dry, you can attach an earwire to each egg with a 7-mm jump ring to complete your earrings (and your Easter outfit).

You’re going to love how lightweight these Easter earrings are . . . and how many compliments you get! Yes, they make a bold statement. But if you can’t wear big glittery eggs on your ears for the holidays, then when can you?
