Make Sequin Heart Earrings

By on January 4, 2012

  1. I drew a heart on some card stock scraps and cut it out to use as a template.

  2. Then I cut out two hearts from some scraps of red felt I already had (leftover from my sewn Valentines!)

  3. I hot-glued strings of red sequins to each of the hearts, making sure to cover the entire felt piece. I just went in a random zig-zag design, since the pieces were so small.

  4. When both hearts were done, I attached the earring backs. First I added a jump ring onto each earring back, and then I hot-glued the jump ring to the back of the heart, covering it up with a smaller piece of felt to keep it secure. I’m sure there’s a better way to do this, but it was my very first time making jewelry!

Et voila! The earrings are done!
