I feel like Ms. Frizzle would 100% wear these earrings given half a chance. They’re about as festive as it gets, and they involve ribbon and sparkle. I’m a huge DIY accessory lover, and part of what I love is making accessories you might not find in stores. These, admittedly are totally cray, but for something I’ll wear for fun to an Easter brunch or egg hunt? Heck yes I’m going to hang a couple of sparkle Easter eggs on my ears! Maybe I’ll even pair them with my astro turf Peter Pan collar…
2 sets of mod podge podgeable shapes, basic designs – you need one large oval from each
small paint brush
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic in silver glitter
2 6mm or 7mm jump rings
Start by tracing your podgeable shapes on some clean scrap paper.
Cut out the shapes, leaving a notch for the circle at the top. Paint a layer of Mod Podge on the back of your Podgeable Shape and place your paper cutout, lining up the edges.
Paint another layer of Mod Podge over the outside of the paper. Let dry completely.
Flip over your ovals. Cut your ribbons to fit the width of your ovals where you plan on placing them.
Paint Mod Podge on the non-paper side of your oval and place your ribbons.
Then, paint a second thick layer over your ribbons, covering them completely. Let dry.
The last step is applying your Dimensional Magic. I have a few tips regarding glitter Dimensional Magic. The glitter settles at the bottom of the bottle, so you’ll want to take advantage of the flat-topped lid by letting it stand upside down for 10 or 15 minutes. This lets the glitter shift so it’s better mixed throughout the bottle.
To avoid bubbles on your finished project, prime your Dimensional Magic bottle by squeezing some out onto a test surface.
Next, fill in each earring with a layer of Dimensional Magic. If you see any bubbles on your earrings while the Dimensional Magic is wet, you can pop them with a sharp needle or scoop them out. Let your earrings dry for 24 hours undisturbed.
Here’s what they’ll look like when dry.
Finally, all you have left to do is attach an earwire to each earring using a 7mm jump ring and a set of jewelry pliers.
Look familiar? I first shared this project over at Mod Podge Rocks! last Easter.
