Lace Earrings

If you have not entered my UPrinting giveaway, you can do so here!  There are VERY low enteries.  Everyone likes FREE stuff, right? 

In my effort to become more "girly" I have decided it was time to get creative and make some lace "doily" earrings.  Are you ready for a lot of pictures?? 

Here is what I used:
Scrap lace fabric
Old Earrings

In a bowl combine 1/4 cup water, with 1/4 cup glue.  (Or however much you think you need, as long as it is equal parts glue and water.)

Instead of buying new "findings" for the earrings, I just took apart some that I never wore anyway. Take apart your earrings.  (I have plans coming soon for the feathers!  Stay tuned. ;))

Cut out your "doilies".

Here they are cut out.

Cover them with your glue mix. (Squeeze out the excess so their not dripping wet.)

Lay them out to dry. (I put mine on the un-shiny side of freezer paper.)

Once dried, add your hook.

 Here they are done!

Please tell me you love them??  I do!  Now, I just  have to figure out what to wear them with.  Ha!

I will be linking up to these fab parties!!

Have A Fantabulous Day!


  1. I love them and want to copy this great idea!!! you could also curl the lace into flowers....lots and lots of possibilities....very creative,

  2. What a great idea. If you get a chance I would love you to link your earrings up to More the Merrier Monday. It lasts through Wednesday so you have plenty of time to stop by. See you there.

  3. Very cute...I wouldn't have thought to just use glue to stiffen things.
