Bohemian Inspired Earrings

Valentines day is just around the corner so I’ve been very inspired by all the festivities and Bohemian styles.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while you’ve probably noticed that I’m really into making miniatures lately. So incorporating a bohemian theme inspired from earrings I’ve seen online, I decided to make a mini dreamcatcher statement earring. I think this is a very fitting DIY for the Valentines season since the dreamcatcher could be very romantic with a free-spirited vibe.

Materials I used:

  • Wire of any size you’re comfortable with
  • Tape
  • Twine or embroidery thread or both
  • Scissors
  • Thread and needle
  • 1 Bead
  • 1 earring hook
  • Feathers

Similar to the dreamcatcher I’ve made in a previous post, I taped a wire into a circle of a comfortable size for my ears. Using the same twine from the previous DIY, I wrapped it all the way around the circle and tied a knot to secure. I used embroidery thread to weave in a pattern (I used the same pattern as the larger dreamcatcher that I made).

After I’m done with the weaving, I cut off the excess twine and used the excess to create another knot). I then pulled a thread through it the first knot and through that thread, I attached a bead. With the second knot, I cut off the excess and sewed it in with the bead. Once I was happy with the pattern, I sewed the earring hook on top.

Using the thread and needle, I then sewed in the feathers to the bottom. I poked a hole into the ends of the feather to use as an anchor for sewing it onto the twine covered circle. You could also glue the feathers but I prefer sewing and then once I’m happy with the look of it, the earring was completed. I think the other ear could be a simple stud earring so there’s only one earring to make in this pair.

I’m working on another Bohemian inspired earring which I will post later next week.

Though I’m prepping for another holiday, today is actually the Lunary New Year. Happy Lunar New Year everyone!

P.S. I opened an Etsy shop. Though there’s only one listing for now, please check it when you get the chance!
