I love fringe earrings. Chain, beaded, fabric – they’re all lovely! I wanted to make a pair of colorful, bohemian fringe earrings, so I decided to make these funky fringe earrings.
The earrings are similar to the funky fringe bar necklace that I made last year. I used leftover cotton yarn from my sunshine spiral earrings project to make the fringe base. First, I cut the yarn into 4” pieces, folded and knotted each piece, then separated the plies. I finished the earrings by attaching the fringe pieces to ribbon crimp ends.
These earrings are easy and cheap to make. You can use any yarn you have. If you have scrap pieces of yarn, even better!
So, if you want to make a pair of fun, boho-style earrings, then read on 🙂
Funky Fringe Earrings
approximately 3ft. of yarn (I used Lily’s Sugar n’ Cream in Hot Orange)
2 gold-plated ribbon crimp ends
2 gold-plated earring wires
2 4mm gold-plated jump rings
sharp-tipped pair of tweezers
bent nose pliers
flat nose pliers
Dimensions (approximate): 1.5″ l x 1″ w
Make the fringe
Cut 8 4” pieces of yarn.
Take one piece of yarn, fold it in half, then make a knot.
Separate the plies on each side of the knot.
Fold the fringe piece at the knot, then place aside.
Repeat with the remaining pieces of yarn.
Attach the fringe
Apply super glue along the inside of a ribbon crimp end. Grab one fringe piece with the tweezers and place it inside the ribbon crimp end.
Continue until you have 4 fringe pieces inside the ribbon crimp end, then fold the ribbon crimp end with the flat nose pliers.
Repeat with the remaining fringe pieces.
Allow the glue to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Finish the earrings
Once the glue has dried, open a jump ring. Attach the earring wire and the fringe earring to the jump ring, then close the jump ring.
Repeat with the other fringe earring.
Hooray! You’re done
