Yarn-Wrapped Hoop Earrings

Standard

This is for all you hoop-earring wearers out there! You ladies know how easy it is to accessorize with a great pair of hoops. I love wearing fun earrings and decided to update a plain pair of silver hoops using a simple piece of colorful yarn.

You may not love the purple, but it’s what I had lying around. There’s loads of fun yarn colors out there, but you could also use embroidery floss as well. Want to see how I made these? They were easy-peasy:

Take a pair of Plain Jane hoops. This was a cheapo pair from Wal Mart.

Take a long piece of yarn and knot it once on the top side of a hoop. You may want to put on a dab of hot glue to hold it in place.

Criss-cross the two ends of yarn in the back, bring around to the front, and tie another knot. Repeat, going around the entire hoop in this manner, Make sure you do this tightly enough so none of the metal shines through. When you get to the other end, do a couple of extra small knots and dab another dot of glue to adhere. Trim the ends of your yarn.

That’s it! Easy, right?

So go ahead and color up your world.

Happy Thursday everyone!

  1. This is a fun idea. I’ve seen wrapped earings made from just wire, but it always seemed more complicated than I’d like. Using existing hoops is just the trick! Thanks!
