Simple steps to make glitter ball earrings

By  | 

Hey! It’s still the Holiday’s around my house. Christmas turns into New Year’s. New Year’s turns into my kids birthdays. My kids birthday’s turn into Valentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day turns into my birthday. So, around the first of March we will stop partying. It’s a rough life I have, I know. You can send me sympathy cards whenever. My address is:

the worst part of the world.
where nothing but horrible things happen.
and no fun.

Everyone needs glitter balls hanging from their ears for New Years…don’t you agree? So, if you so decide that you would like your own pair of glitter ball earrings here’s the how-to:


large beads (4)
thread, jewelry wire, or something similar
the hooks from a useless pair of earrings
ModPodge or glue



Apply ModPodge (or glue) all over the beads. A tip…use a paperclip to hold them. Then roll them babies in glitter.
String your beads. You want two lengths of string so you can have a stacking effect when you hang your earrings.
Decide where you want your string to close, apply a dab of hot glue (or other glue) and press together.
String the two beads through your earring hook and glue shut. Trim up if needed. Ta da…you have glitter balls!
