It is a bow hair clip. Do I need to say anymore?

What you will need:

  • An old hair clip
  • A safety pin
  • Scissors
  • A glue gun (or fabric glue)
Cut 2 strips of cloth. The first piece should be about 3inches by 8inches and the second piece 1/2inch by 3inches.
Take the bigger piece of cloth and fold both the sides over to the middle (as shown in the picture)
Fan fold the piece in the middle and secure it with a safety pin.
Remove the safety pin. Take the smaller piece of cloth and wrap ti tightly around the middle of the bigger piece. Stick the ends of the smaller piece of cloth to secure the bow.
Attach the bow to the hair clip. Your new bow is ready to wear.

DIY Earring Holder

I have too many earrings. I needed some place to keep it safely. So of course I searched for earring holders on the net. All the results I got needed to many hard to get supplies (lace, picture frames i.e. stuff I don't have at home)
So I decided to take the next course of action and make my own earring holder. Here is what I came up with. Hope you like it. 

What you will need:
  • Cardboard.
  • Cloth (stretchy cotton material is the best)
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors

Cut out two pieces of a basic frame from the cardboard. You can do any shape you like.

Apply glue on a side of one of the cut outs.

Place the cloth on the cut out. Press firmly to stick it properly. 
(it is a good idea to stretch the cloth slightly as you are sticking it to the cut out)

Trim off the extra cloth from the edges. Make sure to get it all off.

And there you have it. A super easy to make earring holder.

Easy DIY earrings and rings
By Belko

Music on your fingertips.

My first earrings.
I don't have ear piercings so I make wire clamps. 

 Haute earrings.

The opposite of hate.

Easy earrings in 5 minutes

These are the very first pair of earrings I made. They are super easy to make. I absolutely love these spiral earrings.

 You need:
  • Wire ( about 16 gauge)
  • Earring hooks (is you don't have any you can get them from your old or unused earrings)
  • Scooby wire (any colour)
  • Pliers
 Cut two equal pieces of wire ( I took 10cm, you can any length). Bend one end slightly.

Join the hooks to the wires at the bent ends.
Insert the wire int the scooby wire and cut cut of the remaining.

 Wrap the wire around a pen and remove gently to create a spring shape. 

And your earrings are ready to wear.
