Ear Cuffs: Two Ways | DIY

Here are two ways to make your own ear cuffs. They are a great accessory to wear into the fall months to pair with a chunky scarf and a ponytail. 

Materials: Earring, wire, chain link, chain, bead, ear cuff (I found mine at Hobby Lobby), & wire pliers

Take your wire and bead, thread your wire through and make a loop using your pliers. Connect to ear cuff using a chain link. Before you close the link, add your chain. Your chain should be approximately 4 inches long. Connect end of chain to earring using pliers. 

Materials: Embroidery thread, ear cuff (I found mine at Hobby Lobby), E6000 glue. Tie your first color of embroidery thread to the ear cuff and glue in place. Wrap thread around and glue in place periodically. Keep wrapping and change colors if you want. Tie off and make sure to secure with glue.
