25 Pumpkin Craft Ideas for Fall

I don’t know about you, but I sure am ready for fall!  Being pregnant while living in the Southern summer heat has me longing to see the leaves change color and sit outside in some cooler temps.  🙂  I’m also seeing the stores filling up with pumpkins, and it won’t be long before we start seeing carved ones everywhere.  Personally, carving a pumpkin is not really my thing, but I love the idea of decorating with them.

So, that brings me to this list –

25 Pumpkin Craft Ideas for Fall!

I hope you’ll find something here that you can’t wait to try – I know I have!  🙂

DIY: Easy Anchor Earring Tutorial

I’m so happy to start on a project I’ve wanted to do for months – tutorials!  Quite honestly, none of the pieces I create for the Belle on a Budget shop are *too* technical, but if you’re a beginner, you’ve got to start somewhere.  It’s my hope that I can bring lots of suggestions and tips to those just starting out with making jewelry – I promise, it’s contagious once you get started!

Today’s feature is an anchor earring tutorial.  I created these for the first time months ago, and they’ve always been one of my favorites – I hope you enjoy them, too!

Supplies needed:

Two pairs of 3-in-1 pliers

Wire cutters

Two anchor charms

Two 2″ head pins

Two pearls

Two equal lengths of chain (up to you as to how long or short you would like your earrings)

Two earwires

(While technically the 3-in-1 pliers can cut wire, they don’t cut smoothly in my opinion.  That’s why I included the wire cutters in the supplies list.)

DIY1

All parts needed for the actual earrings can easily be obtained at your local craft store.  The charms are easily located online.

***

First, place your pearl on your head pin, and cut off approx. 1/4″ from the end.

DIY2

Next, create a simple loop (video here if you need to see an example – while she uses three separate tools, you can use your 3-in-1 tool to do it all).

DIY3

Next, we’re going to assemble the lower parts of the earring.  You’ll need your chain, your pearl, and the anchor.

DIY4

You’ll use the flat portion of your 3-in-1 plier tool to open up one of the end links of your chain.

DIY5

After you’ve opened your chain link, slide the charm right on and close your chain link.

DIY6

Next, slightly open your head pin with the pearl, and attach it to the chain and in front of the anchor.

DIY7

Finished with the bottom!

DIY8

Next, open up the loop at the bottom of your earwire.

DIY9

Slide the top of the chain onto the earring making sure that when it hangs the pearl is facing the front, then close your earring loop.

DIY10

And voila! – you have a cute pair of easy anchor earrings to wear!

You can view the finished product with lots of other pics here in my shop.

Hope you had fun making these today, and I’ll be back soon with more tips to share!  🙂
