X's and O's earrings for Valentine's!!


Aren't they just too cute!?! 
I'm so proud of myself for thinking something up on my own for once.. instead of copying someone else's brilliant idea!!
Originally I was going to make a necklace with our last name monogram, then this idea struck me! Uh! Just lovin' em!

Here's how I made them

Hubby drilled the tiny little holes in the scrabble pieces for me.
{The drill gun was our Christmas present from his parents and this is the first time we've used it!}


Drill size: 1/16
Perfect size!!


Then I just used my stash of earring-making stuff! 
{I've recently started getting into making earrings and will have to share about that in another post sometime}

































Okay so my kissy faces are a little scary.. 
{and those nails need a new paint job..}

But I can't wait to wear these earrings out!!



happy heart month
and
happy creativities!!

These are so cute! I wonder if I could get my g-ma to wear them? Playing scrabble is one of the things we do whenever we get together. I think they're adorable! Thanks for sharing ... I'll be linking. And please come join my party anytime!

Hi Jessica, I came across these earrings while searching for Scrabble tile crafts and love them! I am working on putting together a "round-up" of craft projects made using Scrabble tiles. I came across your Scrabble tile craft and wonder if I could use it in the round-up? The round-up will simply be a list of projects and a link to it on your blog. I would also like to include a small thumbnail for the project (approximately 120 x 120px). My website is http://familycrafts.about.com/ and this round up would look similar to this one: http://familycrafts.about.com/od/giftstomake/tp/HomeMadeGiftIdeas.htm. Of course, you will be given full credit for the link and the picture. :-)
