I've been really obsessed over fake fruit the last few months and I've been making paintings with them. I just bought some more fake fruit on ebay for more paintings and I figured I could spare a handful to make earrings. I get so many compliments on these red pepper earrings that I figured WHY NOT make earrings out of fake fruit!
MATERIALS NEEDED: Earring posts with backs, your choice of lightweight fake fruit, and a hot glue gun!
Step 1: figure out where you'd like to place the posts. Make sure to move the piece of fruit around on your ear to figure out the perfect placement and side of the fruit that you want to show.
Step 2: Use your hot glue gun to squeeze a dollop of glue on the back of your earring post and stick it in the desired area.
Step 3: Let them dry for about ten minutes and wear them!
See, it's so easy! The hardest part is picking out what fruit to use. I got mine on ebay.
Have fun making your very own fruit earrings!
