What is more fun and chic than making our very own pair of earrings with recycled cardboard?
I went with a geometric shape and ethnic inspiration designs. Of course, these earrings can be personalized.
Pencil and ruler
Scissors (or cutter knife + a cutting mat)
Acrylic paint + paint brush
Earrings hooks + Jump rings
Thin recycled cardboard sheet
Hole puncher (small hole)
Glossy Mod Pogde (optional)
Trace and cut 2 identical shapes no longer than 2 inches. I like to do a template on white paper first.
Make 2 holes (these will be for the hooks)
Draw a design on each earring. I usually make them symmetric.
Paint, let it dry and waterproof with Mod Podge if you want.
Hook it up, and show your friends your unique cardboard earrings!
