I Made 4 Earring Styles With Junk From Around My House!

Hello, Wednesday so glad to be enjoying a fabulous day of doing absolutely nothing. Anyhoot, I took advantage of being off by cleaning out my jewelry and DIY section in my closet. Image: Tangie Bell making bead earrings for inspiration. I Made 4 Earring Styles With Junk From Around My House!
And OMG! I must admit I am a hoarder and mess keeper of small things and trinkets. 
I hoard almost everything I buy, and in about two weeks without fail my little work station will always look such a mess. So, earlier this week I started tossing out stuff just to find myself putting it right back. 
Geez! I gotta get some of this stuff outta here asap. 
Honestly, I didn't let go of all my junk because I found 4 new ways to make myself some new looking earrings.
Although I  have a lot of mix-matched beads and metal pieces, I just can't see myself throwing them in the trash. 


I Made 4 Earring Styles With Junk From Around My House!
 The first pair I made was with some leftover long needle pins with heads. When it comes to making earrings, beads are always my go-to of choice.

 I take five to six charms of choice and slide onto the pins.

 When I reach my desired amount of beading, I will then make a bent loop into a circle.

Lastly, I will pop on an earring hook. How easy is that? These were made in less than five minutes. I think I may wear them this weekend, possibly for my birthday.

 Some of my best jewelry pieces are when I have no idea of the direction I will be going. Note to self: Never get rid of seashells and broken necklaces.

 With this idea, I used a chain and a few jump rings to hook onto some random pieces I had.

All I used was two gold chains and put it right onto the shell and the piece that came off my church necklace. See how easy that was? It was effortless on all types of levels.

 Another way I love making earrings is by using toggles. You know those pieces that connect to the back of a necklace. I think those things are so cute and I absolutely love using those items to make small bling style earrings.

 In this case, I used a pearl necklace that I've already broken up into small bits. I just added a jump ring to one end and a piece of that broken necklace to give it jazz.


 Used my needle nose pliers to close the rings and that was it. Super duper easy and I was done in under five minutes.

Last but not least, I used the other end of the toggle to make another set of unique ear candy.

I am not a big fan of bling things, but I will make them for my daughters. I just took a pair of earring hooks with fake diamonds attached and added an end toggle. It turned out so cute, and my oldest daughter Carey loves them. 

Most, of the pieces I used in this post, came straight from the craft store.

All items used
Beads
Toggles
JumpRings
Earring Hooks
Needle Nose Pliers
Pin Head Needles
Charms
And Any Broken Jewelry I could find.

There you have it a few earrings made with junk from around my house.

Which one would you wear?

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
