CARDBOARD EARRINGS

Welcome to my world of crafting !! I love to make earrings with different types of materials that can be found in and around the house . What about the idea of recycling the waste cardboard boxes by turning them into beautiful earrings ? Cardboard earrings are not only very easy to make but because of its light weight its comfortable to wear. So lets get started !!



MATERIALS NEEDED:



  1. cardboard pieces ( can be cut from any waste box like soap box )
  2. scissors
  3. scale
  4. pencil or pen for drawing
  5. eye pin and earring hook
  6. glue
  7. paints 
  8. varnish for glossy finish
 PROCEDURE: 

Step 1 : Draw the desired shape in the cardboard and cut into 4 identical pieces. 




Step 2 : Glue ( use tacky glue )  2 pieces together with an eye pin sandwiched between the two cardboard pieces. 





Step 3 :  Allow it to dry for sometime and then paint using colours that match your dress . Then add the earring hook to the eye pin. 



Step 4 : Finally give a coating of varnish to get the shining effect. 
Simple and cute cardboard earrings are ready to be worn!!

Have a nice day!! Happy crafting!!!!!
