How to make Popsicle Stick Glitter Earrings

Here’s the list of what you’ll need: {along with some amazing affiliate links for easy online ordering!}

First, you’ll need to cut some squares from your Jumbo Popsicle Sticks.

Be sure to find sticks that feel really sturdy, or you’ll end up with split squares. Split squares totally make life a three-inch thick mud pie.

But don’t worry.  When you find the right stick, all is well. Weller than tinkly bells.

I mean, look at those two beauties at the bottom of that picture up there.  Popsicle Stick Hall of Fame. They totally lose all popsicle skin and become these little squares of natural delight.

Now we have to drill some holes.  This is why you need to cut more than two squares. Cut four or five. Just in case you have some breakage.

However, we’re going to try and minimize any of that by wrapping the square all up in some tape.  I used teal Washi Tape because I’m a blogger. Non-crazy people who don’t blog can use regular old masking tape. This just helps to keep the wood from splitting.
