DIY ~ Pearl n Crystal Stud Earrings

Hi lovelies!  This DIY I had originally intended to go up before the holidays, but the hustle and bustle prevented me from doing so.  These earrings are so fun and easy to make, I made pairs for my bf's sisters!  While I had all the supplies on hand, they are extremely easy to find/order should you need to do so, and with the leftovers you'll be able to put them to good use!  {How-to after the break!}

You'll need:
  • Pierce holes into your piece of foam and insert the earring posts.
  • Squeeze some glue onto a napkin, and use a Q-tip to apply some to the flat part of the earring post.
  • Firmly adhere your pearl bead, with one hole facing straight down into the stud, the other facing straight up.
  • Use your Q-tip to apply some glue to the top hole area of the bead and press on the hot-fix stud.
  • Pick up a rhinestone with tweezers and apply a small amount of glue to its backside using your Q-tip.  Gently place it in the center of your octagon stud.  Press it into place with the tweezers.
  • Repeat for the next earring, and let dry overnight.

That's it!  They take only a few minutes to make and the end result is so worth it!  I love how they remind me of the evil eye, but in its own way.  They make a statement and are much more edgy and fun than plain pearl studs.

Want these?  I'll be adding them to my etsy shop soon, as I have the materials to make so many!  Leave me a comment if you're interested!
