With a little vinyl, wood circles, and some creativity you can create these maze earrings. This is a quick Cricut project you will love.
I found these wooden circles at the craft store and instantly thought earrings. I’m not entirely sure what their original purpose was for but all it needed was a small hole at the top to make it a necklace or earring. So that’s what I did.
I pulled out my trusty drill and put a small hole at the top of the circle. My brother gave me a bunch of bits for drilling pilot holes awhile back, unfortunately they didn’t fit my drill. Luckily I am not the only person with this issue and they sell adapters for different styles of bits.
Don’t get nervous at the mention of power tools! This was done in my living room on a table. So don’t you dare think you have to have some fancy shop and high-tech machines to make these small alterations. It’s amazing what you can accomplish in your living room.
– 2Wooden cylinders
– 2 Jump rings
– 2 Earring Fish Hooks
– Vinyl cutter (Cricut/Sillouette/etc)
1. Drill a small hole at the top of each wooden circle
Gently clamp down the cylinder with a C-clamp on cardboard. Be aware of what is under your wooden piece. You don’t want to drill too deep.
2. Cut black vinyl
For Christmas, my parents gave me a Cricut. Every crafter needs one! Seriously. It is the coolest machine ever. I have spent so much time cutting out tiny details it’s amazing to have a machine that does it all for you. More cricut projects coming to this blog soon because I love it oh-so-much.
3. Add jump rings and earring hooks
And you are done with your maze earrings. Not much to it.
Now it’s time to experiment with different designs and colors. So many options. Too many options?
