DIY crochet flower earrings with beads

Do you need an incredible and quick present? Or some cute, flowery earrings for yourself?

Here I have a tiny but effective crochet pattern for you!

crocheted earrings

  • You need:
    crochet yarn
    crochet hook
    beads
    earring hooks
    wire bending plier

When you choose yarn, hook and beads please make shure that they fit to each other in size. You can also leave the beads if you want to.

Let’s get started!

String 5 beads on your yarn.

The flower is made with 5 puff stitches.

Puff stitch: Yarn over, insert hook in magic ring and draw up a loop (3 loops on hook), [yarn over, insert hook in magic ring and draw up a loop] 3 times (9 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook, slip stitch.

Single crochet with bead: insert hook ring, slide one bead down, draw up a loop, yarn over an draw yarn through both loops (complete single crochet).

Crochet a magic ring.

Chain 1, *1 single crochet with bead, puff stitch* repeat 4 times (5 puff stitches on the ring).

Pull the loop tight and make 1 slip stitch in first single crochet.

Finish off and weave in ends.

The next step is to apply the flowers to your earring hooks. take them and bend up the wire with the plier. Insert the wire in one slip stitch on top of a puff stitch and close it gently with the plier.

Now you can proudly wear them ❤

If there are questions/mistakes in my pattern or improvement suggestions please write me! It’s my first writen down crochet pattern 🙂

i hope you like it!

I can’t wait to see your finished earrings -please share them with me here, on facebook or insatgram!

2015 Goals and Inspiration

The new year is already 2 weeks old but now I’m really arrived in 2015.

The last week was very inspiring for me. I set some goals for the year ahead and started to work on some of them.

I wanna share my goals with you – so they become more real and I’m much more forced to achieve them 🙂

 

My goals:

  • sewing
  • knitting
  • english (for university and (of course) this blog)
  • photography skills

– learn how to do

  • macrame
  • screen printing
  • tatting (you will see why when you read further)

– understand how it is possible to make photos (where actually a picture appeares) with my Polaroid camera

– blog regularly

– draw more often

– travel to places I haven’t visited yet and explore them with people who live there

– eat more healthy food

I’m feeling very inspired at the moment. This belongs mainly to a purchase I made lately: I decided to buy the digital version of Mollie Makes Blogging. I don’t want to advertise but I just started reading it and I love it! The content is very inspiring and helpful and I’m nearly sure it will make me a better blogger – not over night but I will keep the tons of advices in mind.

To help you to be a bit more inspired I like to share some of my favourite blogs with you and I’m incredibly excited about your favourite ones – please link them in the comments!

Here is my list:

A Beautiful Mess

Attic 24

The Crafted Life

One Sheepish Girl

Messyla

Gemacht mit Liebe (german)

A Creative Being

Little Things Blogged

and of course the blogs from Etsy, DaWanda, Handmadekultur (german) and Mollie Makes.

I bought/got some other inspiring things, too. I bought two books – one is about modern art and the other about drawing and I enjoy reading them incredibly much! and I foud a nice craft book from 1971 on the flea market which explains lots of craft basics. The last thing is the most precious to me – its an doily my grandgrandma made and my grandma gave to me. The technique which was used to make it is called tatting. I love this doily so much! It’s so delicate and fucking (excuse me) beautiful – a real piece of art!!
