Oriental Trading sent me these cute earring kits to try.  They are adorbs!  They are perfect for a sleepover activity for older kids, or how about a girls night?!?!

You will need:
-  Cupcake earring kits from Oriental Trading - the direct link is right HERE
-  Round nosed pliers
-  Wire cutters

Here is the video tutorial:







Directions:
1.  Remove all the pieces from the packaging.  There are small parts, so be careful not to let them get away from you!
2.  Start with the head pin and put one small silver bead on it.
3.  Follow with the cupcake bead.
4.  Follow with another small silver bead.
5.  Take your round nosed pliers and create a loop at the top.
6.  Take your wire cutters and cut off any excess.
7.  Finish the loop.
8.  Take the earring hanger and open the loop - only a little.
9.  Put on the cupcake and bead piece you just created.
10.  Close the loop.
11.  Repeat with the second earring.

That's it!  Now you have these super cute earrings!

The earring kits were provided by Oriental Trading for review, but the ideas and opinions are all my own.

Ahhh!  I just found out the kits are being discontinued!   Good news is they have cupcake beads and you can put a set together yourself and buy the earrings parts at the craft store.  They have tons of other cute kits too, so if this one doesn't work out for you, surely there are others that would!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
