How To Make Ribbon Earrings At Home-Do It Yourself

Hey pretty ones! This time it is a D-I-Y from me again, an earring D-I-Y! Last time it was a “Moong Daal and Bay Leaves Earrings“, this time it is with something I always find in my mother’s sewing machine drawer, “ribbons”! That “treasure box” is always full of laces, ribbons and buttons since my granny and my mum are masters at sewing. In fact, we grew up wearing home made dresses more than the ready made ones! 😀 anyway, coming back to the post, these are the things you will need for the earrings:

1. Satin ribbons. Choose one neon bright shade and another darker shade of the same color family.
2. Earring hooks.
3. Any strong glue.
4. Matching thread.

Step1: Cut our two inch pieces from the ribbons. Make two pieces from the neon one and two from the darker ribbon.

Step2: Apply glue to one side of the ribbon and fold it to stick the two ends together.

Step 4: Now, put a glue drop on the edge of the neon colored loop that you have made, place the darker color over it in such a way that a bit of neon peeps outs from beneath. Now pinch them together like this.

Step 5: Now take the thread and wind it around the pinched ribbons. Keep on winding till it is secured tightly.

This is how it looks on me. I am looking totally tired as I made this after doing “aalpona” ( white version of Rangoli made with rice powder paste) in the entire house for Lakshmi Puja( Bengalis have Lakshmi Puja in the first poonam after Durga puja).

Here is how it looks on me and some “aalpona” pics done by me.
