We found a huge selection of washi tape at Michael’s. How many pairs will you make? Step 1 First start by applying strips of tape to a piece of vinyl approximately 4″ x 7″, aligning the long edges without any gaps or overlaps. Step 2 Then, for each pair of earrings, you need six washi tape-covered strips of vinyl. For the bottom layer, cut two 1″ x 3 1/2″ strips. For the middle layer, cut two 1″ x 2 1/2″ strips. For the top layer, cut two 1″ x 1 1/2″ strips. Step 3 Lay the three strips on top of each other. Check the width of the earring. If you want a slimmer piece, now is the best time to trim it. Cut the top corners at an angle, leaving a flat top in the middle. Punch a small hole in the center. Step 4 Next, trim the layers to your desired length and shape. Try angled or ribbon edges for more interest. Step 5 Then, use scissors to fringe the layers with multiple long, parallel cuts. Make sure to leave the top 1/2″ uncut. Step 6 Finally, thread the earring wire through the holes in the three layers to form the earring. They will never know your secret–You made these DIY earrings out of Washi tape!
