One of my favorite things about these earrings is how much fun it can be to customize the earrings for any season or holiday. As you can see in the photos, you can use buttons as a decoration or use puffy paint to add sprinkles.

Finishing:
As with all my earring patterns, you definitely need to use fabric stiffener on these. I wet them down and adjust the cupcakes so they look right and then let them dry. You can also use pins to keep them in place, so they keep their shape. Once they are dry, attach jump rings to your earrings (I do 3 jump rings so there’s some length but you can do as many as you’d like), and then your french hook. Glue a button or some glitter to ’em, use puffy to add sprinkles or draw something with puffy paint (like the star of leaf above) on wax paper and let it dry over night, it will stiffen and then you can glue it to your cupcake too!

I hope you like these earrings and give ’em a try. They’re always popular when I wear them, so I think they’d be a great addition to your wardrobe too!
