  2. 2 hoop earrings
  3. Rhinestone trim
  4. Baby scissors
  5. Pliers

  7. Fray check

DIY Rhinestone Friendship Bracelet Earrings

First, cut two pieces of rhinestone trim, so each is long enough to wrap around the perimeter of your hoop. Then cut four 1 pieces of each color embroidery floss. Youll have 12 1 pieces total. Divide your pieces of embroidery into 2 piles each pile should have 2 1 sections of each color you are using. Tie a knot at the top of each pile and braid.

Then place your rhinestone trim on top of your hoop and secure by using your braid to tie a knot between the first and second rhinestones. Note: you want to start this on the end of your hoop where the back closure is.

    Adorbs! Where did you get the rhinestone trim? How is it sold?

    • Meredith & Gwyneth says:

      Hi Matilda! The trim came from MJ Trimming. You can order online, but if you want to see it in person before buying Id suggest a local bead store. Its sold by the yard at MJ Trimming so youd have lots leftover for future jewelry DIYs!
