Anthro inspired DIYs are a bit of a theme of my blog- can’t help it, Anthropologie is the store I wish I’d started!- so here’s another one before summer ends 🙂 (Also, I’m rather fond of Anthropologie after 1 of my previous Anthro DIYs got picked up Buzzfeed- yeeeaaah! THANK YOU BUZZFEED! Check out the tutorial here)

 

What you need

Pair of earring hooks

Wire

Seed beads

10 teardrop beads

Pliers

 

Steps

Photo 1: Thread some seed beads followed by 1 teardrop bead onto the wire. Repeat this 5 times, with the same number of seed beads each time. (Or approximately!)

 

Photo 2: Cut off the excess wire, and form a small hoop with 1 end before wrapping it around both wires (i.e. itself and the other wire). If the other wire has bits sticking out, wrap that around too

 

Photo 3: Use your pliers to open the hoop at the base of the earring hook, slip the hoop you formed in Step 2 on then close the earring hoop

 

    

 

Repeat to make the other side!

 

What do you think? Would you wear it? I like the idea, but the colour doesn’t really stand out with my hair (I don’t wear it up much) So either i dye my hair back unicorn-shaded or I gift this pair of earrings to someone… What say you?
