I’ve been playing (mostly coveting) the goodies they sent, thinking of all the projects I want to share and when I spied the Glow In The Dark sticks I knew I wanted to make some kind of jewelry with them. Since Halloween is right around the corner why not a set of spider web earrings?
*Be sure to read the entire post – giveaway info is at the bottom!
- Glue gun
- Glow In The Dark glue sticks
- parchment paper (NOT waxed paper)
- earring hooks
- jump rings
- jewelry pliers
First things first, make the spider webs. I printing off a clip art image as a guide and put it under the parchment paper. I’m also using an old cookie sheet as a work surface to protect the table. Once you have everything set up trace your spider webs or draw them freehand with your glue gun. Be careful not to burn yourself!
I want to point out the tip on the Project Pro gun, you can tell from the photo it is perfect for this kind of work.
Once the glue has dried simply peel them off.
Use the pliers to connect your web to your earring hook with a jump ring and viola! Don’t forget, this is a spider web so if you have a lot of glue strings it’s OKAY!
Es is always wanting dangly earrings but they’re usually too heavy for her little ears, these on the other hand are super light and the fact that they glow in the dark is an added bonus!
