DIY Snowman Earrings and Bag Ties

I’ve been making these adorable snowman earrings using glass pearls for years, and I recently started making snowman bag ties as well. It all started when I was studying in Montreal. When the winter arrived, it came with heaps and heaps of snow. I made these simple earrings as a gift for my roommates.

These earrings use only one simple jewelry making technique that is the groundwork for making jewelry. You’ll need this regardless of what type of jewelry you end up making. It’s simple enough for older children to grasp, and it’s so much fun, I love making them too.

DIY Snowman Earrings – You Need:

  • White glass pearls in three sizes. I used 8mm, 6mm, and 4mm
  • Headpins
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Ear wires

DIY Snowman Earrings – Instructions:

  • Place three pearls, one in each size on the headpin, starting with the largest at the bottom.

  • Cut your headpin to size. Usually, a good length for making your loop is 8-10mm. I measure this using a bead in the correct size.

  • Make your loop by curling the headpin, starting from the tip, around the round nose pliers.

  • Make the loop “hang straight” by re-inserting the round nose pliers into the loop and bending it back.

  • Squash your loop closed using the pliers. Make sure there is no gap.
