How to make: 3 easy lace earrings in under 30 minutes

Lace. I love lace. And that’s quite a confession. I always wanted not to appear too girly or cute. And lace has – besides other qualities – the power to make you appear cute, sexy or girly.

I rather wanted to appear, how I wanted to feel: strong and independent. And what can I say … lace just didn’t fit into that picture for me.

But things change. Don’t ask me why, maybe I became more confident. Maybe I know now that I am strong and confident and therefore I am able to embrace my femininity and cuteness. Who knows.

Fact is, now I think a little bit of lace upgrades every outfit. And how is that easier than with lace earrings?

Lace highlights your femininity. In a playful way. Which woman doesn’t like to feel feminine? Lace combined with denim, leather or cotton is a statement. A very pretty one.

An easy way to bring just a touch of lace into your daily outfit is jewellery, like lace earrings. What a coincidence that I have just the right tutorial for that… wink wink.

Three different, all easy to make, lace earrings tutorials with a simple lace border. And I bet you can do them all together in under 30 minutes.

LACE  EARRINGS ARROW

You need:

  • Lace border that can be cut into single pieces. You need 16 of these pieces.
  • Scissors
  • Super glue
  • 2 earring hooks
  • 2  jump rings (I used slightly bigger ones ∅ 12 mm / ½″)
  • Pliers

 

1. Cut the lace border into pieces: 2 single ones, 4 double ones and 2 triple ones.

2. Glue the pieces together like roof tiles. The following image shows you how.  Apply glue where the yellow dots are (be careful not to glue your fingers together – happens to me every time!). The green dots are on the backside and have to go onto the yellow dots.
