I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Necessity is the mother of invention! So I lost one of my beloved Falcons earrings a few weeks ago. I ordered a different pair and when they came in, they were 10x smaller then they looked online. Fast forwarded a few weeks… the Falcons are in the Super bowl and I know I need a BIG pair of Falcons earrings in my life. Time not being in my favor, I tried to find some on Amazon prime (2 day shipping). Everything is OUT OF STOCK!!! I can’t even be mad cause I’m happy that my team is getting so much love. Well since I can’t order any earrings, I decided to make some my dayym self. Here we go!
I went to the fabric store and bought a half a yard of Falcons fabric ($3 with online coupon), you could get away with much less, but I’ll probably want to make a pair for all my friends for their birthday because I’m that crappy friend that likes to give gifts that I LIKE!!! Earring hooks were $3 for 60. White felt for stability was $0.39.
I cut a tear dropped shape of white felt and fabric. Let’s not waste time reinventing the wheel people, find something that you can use as a stencil!
Each earning has fabric and felt on both sides.
I glued bling on a string along the sides of the earrings and then on the front and back of each earning.
Then I added a little bling’d out flower cause they didn’t feel Gotti enough!
Because “EXTRA” is my middle name, I decided to make a bracelet as well. That was pretty simple just upholstered a $2 base bracelet from the craft store.
Happy crafting!! PS: Rise Up!!!
