DIY Roundup 6

DIY rose hoop-and-chain earrings.

Thanks so much for everyone’s recent feedback regarding my DIY Roundups.  I’m glad to know that many of you enjoy them!  But every week does seem a bit much, so I’m going to take Bromeliad’s suggestion (thanks, btw!) and try these Roundups every 2 weeks so that people can link up more of their projects.  Sometimes we just can’t get enough done in a week (as I’ve definitely experienced lately!;-)

Since I haven’t finished photographing everything this week, I’ll share with you a pair of DIY earrings I made awhile ago.  I just bought a pair of cheap gold hoops from Claire’s and some tiny silk roses from Michael’s.  I removed the stems from the roses but kept the petals bunched together, and threaded two roses onto each hoop.  I then added some dangling pieces of chain in the center for a pair of sexy, feminine rose-and-chain hoop earrings.  (You may have seen some similar types of earrings for sale in retail stores lately, utilizing silk orchids, daisies, or other flowers, and chain, beads, and other dangles.  I was also wearing these earrings in one of the photos from the Tigard/Tualatin/Beaverton Valley Times’ shoot🙂

So welcome to DIY Roundup 6! If you’re unsure how to link up your tutorial (or finished project), here’s how:


Just click the light blue “Ad Your Link” button that appears to the bottom left below.  Follow the instructions in the Inlinkz window, pasting in the URL of your project or tutorial (from your own blog, Facebook page, Flickr account, Craftster.org, CutOutandKeep.net, etc).  Don’t forget to write the NAME/DESCRIPTION of your project – like “Bow T-Shirt” or “DIY Lanvin Necklace” – not your own name or your blog’s name!!! You can link up any piece you’ve made or tutorial you’ve written from any time, not just in the last two weeks (though it would be nice if it’s a recent project, just to keep the content fresh).  It’s all about sharing and bringing in more like-minded visitors to your site!


So now you get to share your own DIY’s!  If you have a DIY project or tutorial that you’d like to share, please feel free to link below!  (However you can only link YOUR OWN PROJECT.  Please do not link others’ projects!)

If you’ve linked up your project to the Roundup, feel free to grab the button below.

  1. I enjoyed reading your DIY.
    Now, we can do something with our 'unloved' earrings. The floral and the dangling effect makes it really feminine.
