DIY Ornament Earrings

Adorable handmade earrings that make stylish gifts for Christmas.
MATERIALS:
  • White polymer clay
  • Sculpey gloss glaze
  • Clay roller
  • Mini cookie cutters
  • White acrylic paint
  • Folkart color shift paint in desired color
  • Eye pin
  • Ear wire hooks
  • Jump rings
  • Jewelry pliers
  • Straight pins
  • Baking sheet
  • Aluminum foil

INSTRUCTIONS:


1. Roll out the clay to about 1/8” thickness.


2. Then, cut out 2 circles using the 1 ¼” cutter.


3. Insert an eye pin into each piece of clay at what will become the top of your earrings. Make sure that it doesn’t poke through on the sides.


4. Next, smooth the edges of the circles making them slightly rounded.


5. Using the pin head, the rounded end of a paint brush handle or something similar, press small dot indentions into the top half of your clay circles.


6. On a covered baking sheet, bake your clay according to package instructions. Typical bake time is about 15 minutes at 275°F.


7. The white clay picks up dust or lint easily, so after it is baked, paint them white to cover up any little imperfections.


8. Once the white paint is dry, dip the pin head into the color shift paint and apply into the indentions on the clay.


9. Next, coat your earrings with the scupley gloss glaze. This seals your earrings and helps give them the high quality of appearance of porcelain. Apply 3 coats according to the instructions. Allow the glaze to dry completely.


10. Attach your ear wire hooks the eye pin with a jump ring in between using your jewelry pliers.


11. Put on and enjoy!
