{DIY Tuesday} Backdrop Chain Earrings

I was initially scrolling through the fashion page on Lucky Magazine’s website yesterday when a DIY story grabbed my attention. It was titled DIY: Make Your Own Backdrop Chain Earrings in Five Minutes Flat, which was extremely attractive to my short attention span. Most of the time, you can’t do DIY projects at the drop of a hat, you need to go and buy supplies. But this project literally, and I do mean literally, takes 5 minutes and you most likely have everything you need for it in your bathroom and jewelry collection already. And I was extremely happy with the end result. So let’s get going on this DIY project.

Step 1: Get Your Supplies

  • Scissors
  • One pair of small stud earrings (look for a pair you don’t wear often)
  • Two short, identical lengths of chain (find a necklace you don’t wear often)
  • Dental floss

  • Pinch and hold one of the pieces of chain by the exact center. Lower it through the two loops on the earring backing.

Step 3: Floss Time

  • Cut a piece of dental floss at an angle, so the end is pointy, and thread the floss through one of the links on each side just under the backing, thus anchoring the chain.

Step 4: Tie the Knot

  • Double-knot the floss to secure the chain.
