These mod earrings are made with some simple supplies you can find at the dollar store. Felicity from Crafty Modern created them in Halloween colors, but you can use any glitter colors you want. They’re fun, they’re light weight, they’re sparkly. What are you waiting for? [how to make sparkly ball earrings]
Afraid of glitter? I read a tip somewhere that if you spray glittered items with hairspray after you’re done making them, the glitter doesn’t flake off much, so don’t fear the glitter. Have no findings? I’ve seen jewelry findings at the dollar store once in awhile, so you might get lucky and find them there, but you might have to go to the craft or big box store to pick up a couple of bucks worth of findings to do this project. The good news is, you’ll have enough findings to make tons of jewelry (hello, holiday gifts!) And, you can get the small Styrofoam balls in the floral section at the dollar store. So there, I’ve answered all your questions about this project! No objections, your honor!

Hey, I might not be right but I think she meant two, two inch headpins, not twentytwo. Anyways, thanks, I made these using florist foam cut into different shapes (by moi-self)for a girls craft party for a gems group (it’s like girl guides) I’m the consellour for.
@Stephanie, right you are! Hee hee! :)
