A few months ago, I was looking for some simple projects to teach as afternoon crafts at a camp that I go to every year. And I saw some simple beaded earrings that seemed easy enough so I grabbed all the supplies and whipped up a few pairs to show to the people that were taking the class. It was such a fun and easy project and so highly customizable that I decided to share it here as well!
It really is a perfect project for a little crafternoon with all your favorite girls. Or just as a nice relaxing new hobby! You could make so many pairs so quickly, you could just give them out to friends and family. I’m trying not to make too many pairs since I can’t even wear earrings. Ha!
What you need for simple beaded earrings:
- flat head pins
- seed beads (I love all of the matte ones from this shop which I used for most of my earrings but we also used this huge batch for the group so everyone could have the colors they wanted – the large batch could make hundreds and hundreds of earrings.)
- earring hooks – gold or silver
- needle nose pliers, round nose pliers, and wire cutter
