Hi Friends! I know many of you are still waiting for warmer weather, but it's already Spring Break here. As luck would have it, the kids are all on different schedules, and actually, we have three different weeks of break going on. So of course, we've been busy making lots of spring crafts, and the girls decided to make some DIY Easter egg earrings, out of polymer clay.
My oldest loves working with polymer clay, and she's made all kinds of goodies with it, such as miniature food for the doll house, beads and different kinds of earrings. Since it's close to Easter, she thought it would be fun to add some Easter egg earrings to her collection. The earrings are super easy to make, and all you really have to do is form egg shapes from the clay and then make clay dots and stripes to decorate the eggs.
Here is what you need to make the clay earrings:
- Polymer clay in spring colors
- Plastic knife for cutting the clay
- paper plate or wax paper to hold the shapes
- Baking sheet and aluminum foil to line it
- Earring posts and backs
When the eggs are cool, attach the earring posts to the backs with glue. We used Tacky Glue, but you could also use E6000 or whatever glue you prefer.
The girls made quite a few different eggs, so they can have several to use or even give some to their friends.
Once the posts are attached and the glue is dry, the earrings are ready to wear!
These little Easter egg earrings are big enough that you can definitely see them, but they're not heavy at all. Even my little Diva has no trouble wearing them. And they're super cute too!
Have you ever worked with polymer clay? The kids have a lot of fun with it, and I think the possibilities are endless.
Thanks so much for dropping by!
