Stashbusting some slightly OTT Earrings

This morning I woke up with the urge to make Pom Poms.

So I did.

Pom Poms

It is a nice fun little activity that is easy to do while catching up on my trashy tv programmes.

NB. I used my Clover Pom Pom Makers, but if you look at this post, I put in a few different ways of making them too.

Anyhow, what to do with the Pom Poms? I remembered a picture I had seen somewhere on Pinterest a while back, and decided to make them into some fun, cheap, and kinda kooky earrings!

I had some silver ear wires already in my stash of random crafting supplies, so it was just a case of threading the yarn through the loop of the ear wire, tying it in a knot, trimming and fluffing………

Boom!

Quick and simple and ready to go.

I used a variety of scraps from my stash, leftover from making garlands, a cushion, another cushion, wristwarmers, and a crochet hook case, resulting in a nice colourful array of earrings!.

Of course the good thing is, I can just snip the yarn from the ear wire and reattach something else if I get bored, and they are nice and lightweight!

Yep. They are kind of ridiculous. But in the best way 🙂
