Kraft Monster : Popsicle Raindrop Earrings

Popsicle Raindrop Earrings

  • Jumbo popsicle stick
  • Metal ruler
  • Pencil
  • X-acto knife or box cutter
  • Sandpaper or rotary tool with sanding band
  • Drill with 1/16" bit
  • Paint
  • Sealer
  • Jump rings and earring wire
  1. Mark the center of your popsicle stick (width-wise). Then mark 1.5" from the edge of your popsicle stick. 
2.    Mark about 0.8" from the edge and draw a straight line perpendicular to your marked center. After that, draw a diagonal line connecting the
       1.5" mark and each 0.8" mark as shown above
3.    Use your diagonal lines as a guide for cutting. Cutting popsicle stick (at an angle or with the grain) is easy - it only takes just about 6-8 swipes
       with a box cutter.

4.    Shape your cuttings into a raindrop shape using sandpaper or a rotary tool with a sanding band. Mark and drill a hole for your jump ring (I
       used a 1/16" bit to minimize the popsicle stick breaking).
5.    Paint your earrings on both sides and apply a coat of sealer. Add your jump rings and you are ready to wear them matching your outfil!!!!
