Fabulous Fringe Earrings, Yarn Craft + Video


The Fabulous Fringe Earrings are super fun fringey pair of earrings that only take a few minutes to make.  Make them using small amounts of yarn, crochet thread, or embroidery floss like I did.  This is also a great project to upcycle a pair of hoops you may already have on hand.  Makes a super fast and easy little wearable, so treat yourself or someone special too!

Want a little help? There's a full video tutorial below too!

Click below to watch a full video tutorial on how to make this project:


Materials:
  • 1 skein cotton embroidery floss (I used DMC cotton floss in the #351 colorway)
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Scissors 
  • 2 Earwires/french hooks, 2 jump rings, 2 earring hoops (as an alternative, you can simply add the fringe to a pair of earrings you already have!)
  • Optional: a small amount of clear glue to "set" the knots to keep them from coming apart.
Sizing:
  • Earrings as shown are approximately 2 inches tall, size may vary depending on the earrings/hoops you choose.

Instructions:
  • Pull a piece of embroidery floss from your skein about 3 inches long long, pull some more and fold in half, then pull some more and fold in half again. 
  • Fold the bundle around your finger to make a loop, and put the loop into the center of the hoop.
  • Put the tails of the bundle into the floss loop and pull snug to tighten up against the hoop.
  • Add three more to the hoop for a total of four.
  • Trim ends of fringe neatly straight across as shown.  You can make the ends longer or shorter for a different look.
  • Repeat for the other hoop.
  • To assemble your earrings, gently pry open the jump ring with the pliers.  Add the hoop ring and french hook/ear wire to the ring.  Carefully pry closed.
  • As an option, you add a very tiny dab of clear glue to the back f each knot to keep them from coming apart.  Let completely dry before wearing.
