10 Minute Doily Earrings

10 Minute Doily Earrings at 30 Minute Crafts

I found these little doilies at the craft store and knew immediately that I wanted to turn them into earrings. I love making jewelry, especially for these Craft Lightning series. Jewelry doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated. It can be simple and fun. Like these doily earrings. It doesn’t get much simpler than this for Valentine’s jewelry!

doily earring supplies Supplies for Doily Earrings:

Mini Doilies
Starch
Iron
Earring Wires
Jump Rings
Pliers

 

Start by starching the doilies. This is optional, but gives them more stiffness. You could also use a stiffening agent like Stiffy Fabric Stiffener, but it has to be put aside to dry. Whereas with the starch, you’re done in 10 minutes.

The trick to keep the starch from scorching is to spray the starch on one side, flip the doilies, then apply heat to the back.

Open a jump ring with the pliers, and feed it through the edge of the doily. Add the earring wire, then close the jump ring.

A friend of mine stopped by, saw the earrings, then saw the package the doilies came in. She looked at me in surprise and said (almost accusingly) “You BOUGHT the doilies.”
“Um, yeah.” I replied, “I’m not about to crochet them. This is so much faster!”
Sometimes I really, really love being a 30 Minute Crafter.
