Rose Earrings

These earrings are so cute and so easy to make. All you need is one trip to spotlight and you will have all the supplies you need to make a cute gift for a friend or for yourself.



Polymer Clay (I bought mine from spotlight)

Craft glue or hot glue gun

Earring backs (I bought mine online but you can also find them at spotlight)

Small piece of thick paper (optional)


Step 1:

Choose a colour to work with and break off a small piece. Make sure it is nice and soft before you start working with it.


Step 2:

Split the piece into two even halves and roll into balls.


Step 3:

Roll each ball into a snake and flatten it so it is quite thin.


Step 4:

Start rolling the clay from one end to the other. As you roll curl out the top edge a bit to get that petal effect. It might take a few tries before you get the perfect rose.


Step 5:

Once you have two roses that look quite similar bake in the oven according to the directions of the packet of clay. (I do mine for 15min at 130°C.)


Step 6:

Once out the oven let it sit for a couple of minutes so the clay is completely hard. Then glue the earring backs on using your hot glue gun or craft glue.


Step 7:

If you are giving the earrings as a gift and you want it to look a bit fancier cut out a piece of card to display the earrings. Punch two tiny holes in the card and slide the earrings in.
