Make Your Own Resin Earrings!

Back in April I took pictures to post a tutorial on how to make resin flower earrings. Soon after, my computer crashed and I lost the pictures. So today I made some more and decided to give this post a second try!

In April, I came across some resin flowers at Michael’s which were on clearance for $0.98. How could I resist? I instantly decided that I would use them to make earrings, so I headed down the jewelry isle and picked up some blank earring posts and backs.

Here is what you need to make the earrings-

  • Resin Flowers
  • Blank Earring Posts
  • Earring Backs
  • E-6000 Adhesive

(If you can not find resin flowers at your local craft store there are plenty on ETSY!)

Take your resin flower and apply a generous dab of adhesive.

Then push the post down onto the dab of adhesive. Try to center the post onto the flower.

Sit the earring in a safe place and allow the adhesive to dry. I let mine sit all night since the E-6000 can take a while to set.

Once the adhesive has dried you can put your earrings on and wear them like a rockstar!
