Today I'm about to reveal The Mystery Thing! In my last post, I showed off some cute and colorful chandelier earrings, made with a secret ingredient.
So many excellent guesses! The consensus was wire insulation, with birthday candles running a pretty close second. Also straws.
Nope, nope and nope! Here's the reveal...
Q-tips. Plastic. Dollar store. Many colors. Whee!
I repeat: whee!!!!
The DIY is super-duper easy. Just snip 'em into little segments:
String them onto headpins or eyepins, along with some complementary beads and spacers.
Add chandelier findings and/or earwires and you're done!
I hope everybody goes scavenging for colored Q-tips! Even if you don't make jewelry, wouldn't they be cute in a little glass container in your bathroom? The colors - so yummy!
Thanks for playing, my fabulous crafty readers!
