I haven’t made earrings in a while so, I made some wire wrapped earrings for this weeks DIY project. These are really easy to make, and only took me about 20 minutes. Please ignore my chipped nails…

Things You Will Need:
Wire
Pliers
Beads
Earring clasps
Earring hooks
Thing-a-ma-jig*

If you’ve used a Things-A-Ma-Jig, you can find them at Michaels. They’re great for any type of wire wrapping or beading.

Step 1
Using your rounded pliers, form a loop in the top of the wire.
(Please ignore my horrible nails.)

Step 2
Set up your Thing-A-Ma-Jig like the above image. You can leave the large bottom peg off the board. I just forgot to take it off.

Step 3
Wrap your wire around the pegs so it looks like this. When you’re done with this part, take off the wire and flatten it a bit.

Step 4
Add the bead and put a small downward bend in the wire.

Step 5
Put another look in the bottom of what is soon to be your earring.
If there’s extra wire, clip it off at the top of your loop.

Add on your earring clasps and hooks, and you’ve got yourself some cute earrings! They’re so much better when you make them yourself.

Hope you like them! Happy crafting 🙂
