This is a super easy & fun project for Halloween. Wink



What you'll need:
plastic cupcake toppers (I used Halloween Jack O'lanterns that I bought online).
Earwires
Sandpaper (or a dremel with a sanding drum attachment)
Heavy duty scissors (or wire cutters)
Needle nosed pliers to open jumprings or earwires
Jumprings or Chain (for adding optional length if you like your earrings super dangly)


This is what I started with. As you can see, the pick which sticks into a cupcake needs to go.

Take your wire cutters & trim off the plastic post, then sand it smooth, so there are no sharp edges.


Add your earwire to the top. If you prefer longer earrings, you can add some chain & a jumpring. Make sure they dangle straight. I added the earwire right to the jack o'lantern handle.

Voila! Go rock those festive earrings at your next Halloween soiree! Happy Halloween!
