Have you ever tried some DIY idea of making any accessories for yourself? I love easy and quick jewelry-making ideas and I have designed many for myself as well as my friends. I am sharing a tutorial today on the upcycling and refashioning of an old pair of earrings.

If you are following me for some time, you might already remember my previous handmade jewelry and accessory DIY ideas. Today I am going to share a super easy and quick Wool Thread Wrapped Hoop Earrings tutorial. I hope you will enjoy this idea to refashion any old rusty pair of hoop earrings.

I have designed a rusty pair of hoop earrings. I was not wearing these for long because of their rusty look. Recently I thought to design it and wear it again as hoop earrings are trendy these days. Have a look at how I have turned an old pair of earrings into a completely new look.

Quick crafts with fewer supplies are my favorite kind of DIYs. Who likes to collect a long list of craft supplies? At least not me..hehe! I try to make crafts with available supplies mostly. Also as I am a craft supplies hoarder, so I keep collecting stuff for no reason. I find it later & use it while crafting then.

OK, for today’s DIY, you will need to have:

Thread / Wool or silk

Scissors/thread cutter

Glue – transparent


How To Make:

Take a 20 inches long wool thread and double the thread together. You can decide the length according to your earring size. Glue it to the point where you are starting to wrap on the hoop earring.

Apply glue on the metal, so the thread will be adjusting on it well, wrap around and glue the ending carefully. It should not be too close to the locks or too far from the locks. Whatever looks better, go for it according to your choice.

Wait for a moment until the thread gets fixed on the hoop. Then apply some transparent glue on the thread and paste the rhinestones lace. It would be better if you will measure & cut out the lace before pasting it on the earring.

Let it dry for a few minutes and your earrings are ready to wear again! Where are the rusty spots by the way? ;)

Simple, easy and quick DIY for giving your ordinary plain hoop earrings a new look. Isn’t it? I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.

You can also have a look at some of my previous Jewellery Making DIYs. You will find my step-by-step tutorials of earrings and pendants making mostly. They are super easy and any newbie can try it well.
