DIY Straw earrings

Summer is here…35°C ( 95°F ) at noon, It makes you just want to jump into a swimming pool and drink a cocktail! Too bad we don’t live near the beach!
So a little summer tutorial (or to bring summer where is still cold weather) to recycle your cocktail straws into nice earrings!

You gonna need: Staws, glue, jump rings, earring wires.

Cut neon straw into small pieces. Make 2 holes with a needle, pass a jump rings into it and fix earring wire. I drew a circle on paper to make the shape and glue straw pieces together. I used super glue…it work good but smell very bad, might have been preferable to use a glue gun!

I’ve made another pair with painted straw.

Cut and glue straw pieces together, spray paint them. When it’s dry, fix earrings wires.

Hope you enjoy this tutorial, have a nice (sunny?) day!

    I appreciate your idea, I like the concept of making earrings by using straw. Earrings are very nice and I will try to make this, love them.

    Another cheap easy and cute idea. I wil try this at work too. I will make them when I make the paper clip and color paper earrings! It is also quick and easy for when my mind gets tired.
