Okay, so a little while ago, I saw this inspiring diy on a blog that I knew I had to try. Well, this is how it turned out!!!!
I LOVE how it turned out!! Eeek!! It is so cute! I love how the turquoise and gold paint complements each other so well!! 🙂
Okay, so this is all I used to make these beauties:
-1/16 inch thick sheets of birch wood
-turquoise and gold paint
-1/16 inch drill bit
-wire ear hooks
-four jump rings
So, I first traced out the size of my six triangles on the wood with pencil. I found that it would’ve been really helpful for the blogger who I got this from to have written their measurements, so I will give you the ones I used. Feel free to make them bigger or smaller to your choice though. The larger ones measured 3x3x3 cm and for the second ones they measured 2 1/2×2 1/2×2 1/2 cm. (Two and one half centimeters) And the smallest triangles measured 2x2x2 cm.
So, once you’ve done that, you can either use an x-acto knife or scissors (yes, I know, scissors. But it actually works okay! 🙂 ) and cut the triangles out. (Cutting against the grain of the wood made it split less for me.)
Then, paint the triangles. I did turquoise for the smallest, and gold for the largest, and left the medium ones the natural wood look.
Now, using a 1/16 inch drill bit and your power drill, carefully drill a hole into the top of the smallest triangle.
Glue them together, with a bit of space between each triangle.
Then, attach two jump rings and an earring wire together and attach to the triangle trio. 😉
Repeat this to the other triangle trio, and you’re DONE!! YAY!
Aren’t they just so cute?! 😀
And that’s all!
