Last year I made pumpkin earring out of PVC pipe and I loved them. This year, I decided to go with the same idea but this time I wanted to use wood. After a big wind storm we had here in Seattle, my yard was littered with branches. I took one of those branches and cut it into small pieces, maybe a 1/4 inch thick with my miter saw.
I painted them orange and used a sharpie to make the jack-o-lantern face. Like the washi tape earrings I made a while back, I drilled a small hole on the top so I could add the metal piece to hook it to the earring (could I be more technical right now?).
And BAM! Brilliance. I actually loved these more than the PVC pipe earrings last year. Lucy liked them more too and asked me to make her a pair. Well, we'll see about that.
This is Day 2 of my Crafting with Wood Series!
