How to Display Your Wedding Earrings


Difficulty Level: Easy
Color Inspiration: Black, beige, and cream


PROJECT MATERIALS
• 1.5" wide velvet ribbon (at least 6" in length)
Fabric glue
• 1.5" wide D-ring
Fabric scissors

OPTIONAL MATERIALS:
Copper spray paint
Gold spray paint

CUSTOMIZE YOUR D-RINGS
The most commonly available D-rings are silver and can be found in the sewing section of any craft store. What if silver isn't your thing? That's why we have three different metallic colors here to inspire you: silver, rose gold/copper, and yellow gold! We used the spray paints listed above. For the copper spray paint, we did find it can scratch easily, so try priming your D-ring by sanding it with fine grit sandpaper and then use a white primer spray paint. After spray painting with the metallic color you prefer, allow to dry and cure for 48 hours before crafting.

INSTRUCTIONS
1. Loop your velvet ribbon onto the D-ring. On the back side of your velvet ribbon, take your fabric glue and draw a small line on one end. Fold over the straight edge of the D-ring and press to dry. Allow to fully dry for a couple of hours before handling.

ALTERNATIVE STEP
If you don't have access to fabric glue or want a no-dry time craft, you can also use a trimmed down Velcro adhesive dot.
