So my favourite pair of earrings broke and I really wanted to wear them tonight. So in my typical fashion, if I can’t find what I want, I make it. (Often just in time for when I want to use it.) In this case I made new earrings from scrap lace laying around the studio and here is how I did it.
Lace Earring Tutorial (pdf version after text)
Materials: Lace, Scissors, Glue, Earring Back (Fishhook)
Options: In this tutorial 2 pieces of lace are layered together for extra bulk, it calls for gluing but fusible webbing or hand sewing with also work, it just gives a different look. Also fishhook earring backs are used but so could posts or hoops. Experiment! Have fun!
Try pre-made lace appliqués for a super quick version. Just add earring backs and go!
1 – Roughly cut out lace motif, you will need three of them.
2 – Glue 2 motifs together back to back.
3 – Trim excess lace.
4 – Add earring back.
5 – Done!
