DIY Earrings Made Out of Stickers!

I think you guys are going to love this craft project. Especially those who love making little charms and such.

In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to make earrings and/or charms out of stickers and paper. And if you’re a crafter reading this, I’m sure you have many cute stickers in your crafts collection. I know I have too many.

To make your stickers sturdy and worth wearing again, we’ll coat the stickers in resin. It’s pretty easy if you use the UV resin as I did.

Mine turned out so neat that I made several as just charms.

Let me show you...

I also used a rotary tool to drill the holes in them. A regular drill would work if you have a small enough bit.

Step 1:

Find some stickers and scrapbook paper to match the other side of the sticker.

Step 2

Take the sticker off the backing and stick on to the back of the scrapbook paper.

Step 3

Next, you’re going to cut around the shape of the sticker. So, this might be more tedious depending on the sticker.

Step 4

Grab your resin. Using an eyedropper - or whatever tool you like using - and carefully add the resin to the sticker. You want to try to get as close to the edge as you can, but if it accidentally leaks over, I'll show you some ways you can fix it.

I used UV resin because I think it’s just easier, but you could also mix up some two-part resin instead. I also used a silicone mat called a doing tray, but the one I got didn't seem very useful.

Step 5

If you use UV resin, especially, you can carefully take your resined stickers outside in the sun and they'll dry in no time. I know that the sun will quicken the drying time for two-part resin also.

However, if you can't take your stickers outside and you're using the UV resin, you can get one of those UV lights made for fingernails. I did it both ways.

Step 6

Once your sticker side is completely dry, check to see if any resin slipped over. If it did, you can cut off the excess and then file it down to make it smooth. Don't file over the image tho, it will scratch and blur it.

I think that doing this on a regular silicone mat would have been a lot easier for this instance, honestly.

Step 7

Now you want to flip over your sticker and resin the backside with the scrapbook paper and let it dry.

Step 8

Now we need to make the hole for the jump ring to go through.

I used a rotary tool to make my hole, but first I needed to make a little divot so that the drill bit wouldn't go all over the place.

You don't need to make it deep, just enough for the drill bit to slip into:

Using a small drill bit, drill into the mark you just made.
