Can we talk about hot dogs for a minute? I think they are one of the staples of summer! Every once in a while I look past the sodium and nitrates and indulge. There is nothing better than a hot dog on a hot summer night, straight from the campfire or grill. You do have to get the good hot dogs though- the expensive kind! I am not a mustard fan, FYI- but that is a subject for another day. To keep with the spirit of the hot dog- I created these whimsical hot dog craft earrings!
Listen up, you guys. I have worn these dogs to two functions and people love them! They are just quirky enough that people notice, comment, and dare I say these hot dog craft earrings have made me some new friends. These earrings could be the answer to world peace! A pretty great bargain for under three bucks.
Here is what I used to make these earrings, and I am including an idea on how to gift these dogs! Make someone’s day! Or at least barbecue.
Supplies needed to make your own hot dog craft earrings:
- Timeless Minis Miniature Hot Dogs
- 5mm Screw Eye Bails
- 1 inch Fish Hook Earring Wires
- Eurotool Super New Glue
- Corrugated Cardboard Gift Tags (optional)
And check out the detail! It’s mustard, I know- but still super adorable.
Bend the loop end of a fish hook earring open using pliers. Bend the loop sideways so it will be easy to close again.
Now your hot dog craft earrings are ready to become a part of your summer celebrations!
If you are looking for a fun gift idea, or barbecue hostess gift, might I suggest these rustic corrugated tags!
Simply punch a couple of small holes in a tag:
A fun accessory tradition that I am sure will be a huge hit at your next summer gathering. While you’re in the crafting mood, this DIY mason jar utensil caddy is the perfect addition to a summer party.
