Upgrade your earrings - DIY


I'm bored of my jewellery at the moment, but I'm struggling to find pieces I like. I was cleaning up my collection when I noticed I have two earrings like the one bellow. The only difference is the other one has a butterfly on it. After some thought I came up with this idea to jazz my earrings up a bit. I think it is perfect hit of colour I need this depressing winter.

tie the next strand of wool to the one you've just finished using (hide the knot my wrapping wool around it)

Finish. I held the final strand down with UHU glue, but you can knot it)

Pass the needle through the tights and then pass it through a pearl

Pass the needle + pearl through the tights again. I repeat the process twice then double knot it.

Add as many pearls as you like in whatever order you like.
