Some days, a girl feels more clever than others. Take the day that I was trying to think of something simple and inexpensive to make for each of the members of my sewing circle. At the time, I was weaving in some ends on my crochet work. I looked down at the yarn needle in my hand and BOOM… light bulb moment!
That was followed by a bout of Why Didn’t I Think Of This Sooner, which itself was followed by a trip to the craft store.
To make an awesome pair of Needle Earrings, you’ll need just a few things:
- Jewelry Pliers (2 pair, if you’ve got them)
- A package (or two!) of blunt tip yarn needles (metal or plastic will work)
- 4 jump rings in the size of your choice per pair of earrings
- French Hooks or similar
You can find these blunt-tip yarn needles in the needlework with the crochet hooks and knitting needles.
All the supplies to make a slew of needle earrings!
For one earring attach needle > jump ring> jump ring > earring. Two jump rings makes them hang nicer so that eye is turned out when you wear them.
Here’s a great photo tutorial on opening and closing jump rings.
Wash, rinse, repeat. Wear and share!
