Make These Fun Boho-Chic Earrings

Have you seen the Spring issue of Jewelry Stringing yet? One of my favorite sections to help curate this time was the Coachella Chic collection, which features a host of stylish indie looks.

Very recently, I came across three clever DIY earring and bracelet ideas that look super-doable–all reflecting a modern-day hippie look. Fun and boho-chic, you can whip them up in a matter of minutes.

While these feather earrings by Brit + Co. call for the use of neon duct tape (above), I decided to try the look of scrapbook paper (below). My condensed instructions follow, but the full how-to can be found on the Brit + Co. web site. I especially recommend reading their tips on how to cut the edges to give them a more realistic feather look.

 

First, I drew a basic feather shape on my paper.

Then I covered both sides with packaging tape for added durability.

    

Next, I cut out the design.

Finally, I wrapped the tips with wire and attached earring findings.

    

 

I plan to make a pair of these crafty earrings next. Can you believe they're made with bobby pins and nail polish? Visit the Metric Child's blog for the how-to.

 

This duct tape bracelet on the Craft Foxes blog is a fun example of the popular chevron trend. Their short how-to video can be found here.

    

Let us know what you think of the Coachella Chic project section by leaving your comments below. And you won't want to miss the Summer issue, available June 4th, which features a fun "Modern Cowgirl" section and a special collection of mixed-media projects!

Happy crafting
