autumn earrings with acorn shell 

What we’ll need

what we'll need

We will need:

  • two acorn shells
  • two head pins
  • two large beads
  • two small beads in the same color
  • two fishhook earrings

Note; you can choose winch large beads you want but notice that they’re big enough to fit under the acorn shells.

How it’s made

First of all we take an acorn shell, some tools and a head pin to make a tiny hole into the shell.

Push a hole into the center of the shell with pliers. After that try to pull the head pin through the shell. Instead of using pliers you can also use a drill to make the hole.

Now we take a head pin and a small bead. Slide it on the head pin.

Next we take the large bead and slide it on the head pin.

step two

After this we take the acorn shell ans also slide it on the head pin.

step three

We’re almost there. Cut the head pin about one centimeter above the acorn shell. Now we make a nice, closed eye.

step four

Attach the fishhook earring.

step five

Repeat the steps above to make the second earring and we have some nice acorn shell earrings.

end result

See you next time!
