Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Knot It!
Bend the floss in half on the earring. Then tie a knot loosely. Push the knot up to the hook to get it as close as possible.
Step 2: The Stich!
If you don't know how to do the stitch check out my perler bead tutorial for a bracelet. You string one bead on a piece of string. Then, get the other string and put it through the bead. Each string will end up on the opposite side. Do the stitch 4 times.
Step 3: Stitch the Top Bead!
Right now you should have your forth brad finished. Just like the regular stitch, you put the floss through the bead. You want to grab your floss from the forth bead and put it through and pull. It will look like a diamond or a kite shape. Then, go to the back of the earring and knot it so it stays.
Step 4: Glue It Down!
For the last step, add a dot of glue on the back of the Perler bead diamond connected to the earring. Grab the knot on the back and place it on the glue. Trim of excess red embroidery floss! Your done!
Step 5: Finished!
Thanks for looking at this! I hope you have a nice forth of July! I loved how they turned out!
