DIY Whisk Earrings using paperclips

These are perfect for the baker or chef in your life!
You can also make these using thin jewelry wire - but I didn't have any so I used paperclips :)

What you need:
  • Paperclips
  • 2 Coil Ends
  • 2 Earring hooks
  • Plies & jewelry cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun/thick glue





Bend your paperclips & cut them evenly

Bend your paperclips close together like this so it will fit into the coil ends

Bend up a loop from your coil end - this is to attach the earring to later :)
You have to do this a little fast if you're using hot glue.
So have your paperclip bits ready
Put in a small drop of hot glue into the coil end & push in the paperclip bits as fast as you can & turn them a bit so they face different directions

Attach your earring hooks & you're all done!!
