The 4th of July is coming up and I thought I would add a little pop of red to go with my outfit! These earrings were super easy to make and (bonus) didn’t take long at all. I was given an entire jar full of costume jewelry pieces for Christmas one year. It is from a fabulous shop in Belvedere Square here in Baltimore. I have used pieces for necklaces, earrings, you name it. So I decided to dig through the container and picked out these circle pieces. You can find similar ones at your local craft store or even make your own. So lets get start:

Step 1: Cut your string about 3 inches long and make groups of about 6-7 pieces of string.

Step 2: Loop one group of strings (6-7 pieces) through a hole in your jewelry and pull into a slip knot. Repeat this process on two other circles next to each other on each of the earrings.

Step 3: Trim the access string straight across using your scissors

Step 4: Add the earring hooks to your pieces using the needle nose pliers.

You can also add jewelry wire around the circles or even beads to change up the look of these earrings. You can also use other colors of string or use multiple colors. The possibilities are endless!
