How cute are these fluffy pom pom earrings?
Erica makes hers with a pom pom maker, but you definitely don’t need one to make plump pom poms.
To make a pom pom, simply wrap your yarn around two fingers until you reach the desired density and then wrap the yarn around the center a few times and tie a double knot. Remove your fingers and cut the folded ends to reveal your pom!

22. Brass Monstera Leaf Earrings
What do these brass monstera leaf earrings and string art have in common?
They’re both made using the same technique!
23. Beaded Himmeli Earrings
Play with geometry in this pair of handmade earrings.
I love Lindsey’s variety as she’s added a bit of moss inside her teal-green beaded himmeli for a seaside look, but there are so many ways to customize your own!
