DIY Chipboard Earrings

by User Not Found | Jan 08, 2014



Happy New Year friends! Did you survive the holidays? Maybe don’t answer that! I don’t know about you, but I am exhausted. No worries, I have a super easy DIY project for you to keep your winter blues at bay. I don’t know about you, but where I live we dress in so many thick layers I sometimes feel like earrings are my best asset! If I have to wear a big puffy coat, I am going to make sure my accessories stand out.

 

Here’s what you need to make these adorable earrings:

 

Cricut® Expression 2
Cricut® digital cartridge, Southwest
Cricut® StrongGrip cutting mat
Cricut® Tools, Weeder
Chipboard
Spray paint
Earring hardware supplies


 

Tip: We have several different feathers that have been created in Cricut Craft Room, so be sure to check out all of the fabulous options!

Ready to create? Of course you are! First, cut your feather pattern from your chipboard. The chipboard cut fabulously with my regular blade and housing—just make sure you set your blade depth to six and have your machine cut each pattern twice.  If your feather pattern is really intricate, you may need to use a small pair of scissors just to touch up your cuts.

 

Next, spray paint your earrings. Chipboard absorbs paint fabulously, so you shouldn’t need to use paint primer.  Spray one side of the chipboard, and then wait until it is fully dry to spray paint the other side. You may need a second coat of paint depending on the color you choose.

 



When your paint is completely dry, poke a small hole with your weeder at the top of your feathers. (On a completely unrelated side note, isn’t the weeding tool the best thing ever?? Yup, it’s our favorite tool ever at Cricut.)

 

After poking your holes, gently insert your earring hardware.

 



That’s it! Now they are ready to wear! Forget about your down coat and wool socks, you have some adorable bling to brighten your day. Happy January, friends, and stay warm!

    I'm looking into making chipboard earrings. My main problem is that I would LOVE to not buy chipboard and just used every day recycled chipboard however chipboard from cereal boxes and other foods that are easy to find are too thin of a chipboard. Any recommendations of upcycled chipboard boxes, products instead of buying chipboard?

    Thanks!

    If you don't have the Southwest cartridge, you can buy the Feather Mobile in the DIY Project section on the cartridge store.  It is less than $2.00 and has a great feather image!  It is only available for CCR but as soon as I downloaded it I started putting feathers all over all my projects.  Didn't think of earrings though!  Great idea!
