Pink Teardrop Earrings

Yes, this is a re-post but I am showing you how to make these and entering them into a contest. The contest is from Dollar Store Crafts. You have to be able to make your craft for $5 or less and you can win a $100 gift card from Dollar Tree

Package of pink beads from Dollar Tree-$1.00
strand of 8mm or 6mm glass pearls (I got mine from Micheal's) $1.00
set of ear wires (about 4 sets in  a pack for $1.47 at Hobby Lobby)
headpins (15 for $1.47 at Hobby Lobby)
Pliers with cutter on hand

Here are my earrings. It should be mentioned that you can make many more earrings and jewelry from the same package of beads and other supplies in the supply list.

Gather your supplies, you need two teardrops, two glass pearls, two headpins and two ear wires for these earrings. You also need a pair of wire pliers with cutters. 

Here is the package of beads you need so you can see what it looks like.

Clip headpin off so it is a straight wire. Bend wire 90 degrees into a loop.

Like so.

Add the teardrop.

Close end tightly and trim end.

Bend other end into a loop. Repeat this process with the remaining piece of wire (the piece you just cut) and one pearl and attach.

Attach to ear wire. Make sure you pinch loops shut well.

All done!
