  • How to make an earring. Frida Kahlo Earrings Diy - Step 3
    Step 3

    1. & 2. Drill holes for the beads and earring wires and then paint the surface of the wood pieces
    3. & 4. Cut out the images and glue them to the wood
    *I used E-6000 Spray because the moisture relaxes the paper so it doesn't bubble
    5. When the images are dry, punch through the holes with a toothpick
    6. Seal the images with a polycrylic or decoupage medium
    7. Create the dangly bits on a head pin with the pliers and make sure to bend a loop at the top
    *You will need 3 dangly bits per earring so 6 per pair
    8. Hand them from the holes with jump rings
    9. Glue clips on the backs of another pair with E-6000 Glue
