Unique little posts whipped up ridiculously cheap, fast, and easy.

I always need more posts for my second piercings to match my bigger earrings. Four materials, four steps, five minutes to make glam posts that can go with any outfit.

Instructions

  1. How to make a stud earring. Sugar Drop Earrings - Step 1 1

    Clean the flat part of your posts to get off all the dirt and oil from your fingers. I used acetone nail polish remover, but you could use rubbing alcohol, Windex, or just soap and water.

  2. How to make a stud earring. Sugar Drop Earrings - Step 2 2

    Put a generous drop of hot glue on each post. Be careful about stringing and stretching!

  3. How to make a stud earring. Sugar Drop Earrings - Step 3 3

    Paint the glue and whatever part of the post may still be visible with a thick coat of nail polish.




  4. How to make a stud earring. Sugar Drop Earrings - Step 4 4

    While the polish is still very tacky, but no longer drippy, dip it in your glitter, making sure to coat it thoroughly.
    .
    Allow it to dry for a little while and it's ready to wear!

Yeah, you could go a million places with the basic idea. I've been considering other possibilities, too.
