Three Step, Simple, Upcycled Wood Earrings <3 KanduBeads





Introduction: Three Step, Simple, Upcycled Wood Earrings <3 KanduBeads

Have you ever just wanted to wear Mother Nature? Sure, we all have...(?)
Here is a super simple, quick and easy way to get down with your natural, recycling self and look cute too!
(this and more DIY tutorials can be found at

Basically, all you're going to need is:

A Twig or Small Branch (one that has fallen already)
Small Saw (We used a jeweler's saw)
Earring Pads
Glue (We used Loctite)


So what you want to do first is find a twig on the ground that has a good, somewhat even diameter throughout it's entire length. 
This will help keep your earrings similar instead of one being huge and one being tiny.
Our twig is about a quarter inch in diameter- it fit perfectly on our earring pads.
Cut a slice off of the twig end using the jeweler's saw.  We like to cut it just a little smaller than a quarter inch.
DON'T CUT YOUR FINGERS OFF-  You won't be able to do the next step...

And Then:     

Plop a drop of Loctite on whichever side is the flatter, more even side of the wood slice.
Don't hesitate to sandpaper it down a little to make it even other wise it will sit wonky and uneven on your ear.


Pop the pad side of the earring post into the center of the glue and leave it to dry!
(We suggest about two hours of drying time, just to be sure. We won't mention what happened to us when we didn't give it enough time to dry :O)

Soooo tough, right?  But I knew you could do it all along ;D
Make these and email the photos of the finished product to us at

and we'll post it on our Facebook! 
Till' next time,
Or Watch me make them here!

    Special earring. I want to share something with you about diy.

    Is there any alternate methods to cutting the wood?

    Hi Evelyinn,

    Any way you feel comfortable cutting is just fine. I used a jeweler's saw because that was what I felt comfortable using. If you want to use a band saw by all means, go for it!
