How to Make Dangling Earrings: Gift Idea

Updated on June 1, 2016

Earrings Earrings Earrings

Say goodbye to store prices and say hello to a jewelry box filled with fantastic dangling earrings. Better yet, with the holidays around the corner, say hello to a present for every girl on your holiday list with pierced ears. The price is awesome and the time involved to make them is less than driving to the mall. Just think: No more crowds! Imagination; however, is the key to the best present in town for the girls on the list.

Do you have an eclectic list of girls to buy for? Perhaps you know someone who is a hippie enthusiast? Peace dangling earrings would be perfect. What about the “nature lover”? Try dragonflies, lady bugs, or leaves. How about that girl who loves to fish? She would love a unique dangling pair of earrings made out of spinners from the tackle shop – they come in an assortment of colors (even rainbow fish)!


  • Ear wires of your choice
