DIY – Photo Earrings

Since my Thrifty Threads 365 challenge doesn’t allow me to shop for any new clothing or accessories for a full year, I decided to make me own jewelry. I came across this awesome DIY project on Necole Bitchie by Blake Von D and I knew I had to give it a shot. It’s easy and cost pennies to make.

These earrings are great for the girl who wants a look that’s completely unique. You can use a photo of a family memory, album, book, etc and turn it into a fly pair of earrings. I decided to use the covers of two of my favorite albums.

You’ll also need a pair of pliers to connect the jump rings. You can find these items at your local craft store.

{cut out the photo and glue it to the cardboard}

{cut away excess cardboard. you can leave the back blank or glue the same image on the other side, which is what I did}

{repeat the steps above so you have a complete pair}

{poke a small hole through the top of the photo. i used the pliers to create a hole}

{attach the jump rings to one another and through the hole of the photo. then attach the earring hook}

  2. I really like these. I wish I would have seen this back with MJ (you would not believe everywhere i went looking for MJ portrait earrings. They are light so that is right down my alley.

    Good work and Keep up the creativeness.

  3. Cute! I bought a pair of Ouija board earrings off of Etsy for a friend’s birthday. I think they maybe put a coat of like shellac or something on them to make them look more finished. The edges were more finished somehow too.

    The possibilities of this are endless though…you could do designer logos, holiday images, political candidates…man…anything!

  4. I so love these! However, I’m curious as to how did you print out out the photos? How did you get them shrunk and on paper that way? Dumb question, but I’m new to DIY, but I HAVE to make these!
