How to: Make Sequin Heart Earrings

If you’re a regular Link Love reader (or craft blogosphere lurker) you know that heart themed crafts are HUGE right now, and sequins are the new glitter. First I showed you Grosgrain’s sequin heart shoe clip tutorial, and then I found Rae Gun Ramblings’ sequin heart headband. I was completely smitten with these ideas, so I knew I had to put my spin on it. I just bought some earring-making supplies last week (of course I braved the Snowpocalypse to go to the craft store!) so I decided to make sequin heart earrings. The tutorial is obviously heavily influenced by the two aforementioned projects, but I figured I’d show you how I did it.

  1. I drew a heart on some card stock scraps and cut it out to use as a template.

  2. Then I cut out two hearts from some scraps of red felt I already had (leftover from my sewn Valentines!)

  3. I hot-glued strings of red sequins to each of the hearts, making sure to cover the entire felt piece. I just went in a random zig-zag design, since the pieces were so small.

  4. When both hearts were done, I attached the earring backs. First I added a jump ring onto each earring back, and then I hot-glued the jump ring to the back of the heart, covering it up with a smaller piece of felt to keep it secure. I’m sure there’s a better way to do this, but it was my very first time making jewelry!

  3. I love these. It would be great for a quick easy project for the children or older adults who love jewelry.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. These are quite cute and would be so easy to make…good way to use up “stuff” in that drawer of treasures. Only change I would make is using red satin to make a complete heart to cover the back of the earring…might even do sequins on both front and back. Happy Valentine’s Day.
