B Wrapped: DIY Rhinstone threaded earrings

Lately I've been looking for great bold earrings that don't over power my face or outfit. I recently saw a pair of earrings that inspired this DIY and thought "I can make that!' So I did. The earrings were easy to make and materials cost not much at all. I found my basic gold hoops on sale at Nordstrom Rack but you can grab a pair at H&M or Forever 21 for under $5. Choosing the color of the embroidery thread is completely up to you and can really change the earrings from Summer to Fall. Happy DIYing!


Step one: measure the rhinestone chain around the hoops measuring about half of the circle. Only measure once but cut two pieces the same length
Step two: Lightly glue the rhinestones around the bottom half of the hoops. Don't worry about the neatness of the glue when attaching as thread will cover any imperfections!

Step three: Tie a knot with the thread starting at the back of the earring
Step four: Wrap around between each rhinestone twice in the same direction also wrapping over the knot tail
Step five: When you reach the end of the rhine stone wrap around last rhinestone to swtich directions and repeat step four in the opposite direction
Step six: Secure thread with a tight double knot at the end at snip tail. (This will be in the back of the earring and hardly noticeable when wearing.)
*UPDATED: On my nails I am wearing, OPI Uh oh roll down the window seen here
