Squinkies are kids toys. They’re little, Polly Pocket sized, figures made out of rubber that come in everything from Disney princesses to Hot Wheels. They are small, affordable, and you can make tons of fun combinations.
I love Squinkies and finding new ways to make jewelry from items you no longer use. This is a fun way to turn your little girls toys into earrings when she stops playing with them. It’s also a fun project for you to do together. It’s also a great project when babysitting to pass the time and keep girls entertained.
Caution: Sharp objects involved, don’t allow children to do without supervision.
• Needle (I use a yarn darning needle)
• Beads (at least 2 small others can be optional)
• Earring hooks
• Clear stretch cord
• Scissors or jewelry wire cutters
• Rubber jar opener (optional, but useful)
Step 1: Step 1
Choose 2 squinkies that you want to use. Since you probably don’t have two of the same I choose two that I like together, like Woody and Jessie from Toy Story or two different Barbies.
