Resin Holiday Earrings

Make a pair of eye-catching holiday earrings using resin!

Resin Holiday Earrings

As you know, resin is one of my favorite materials to craft with. Jewelry is a simple thing to make with resin, and is one of my favorite go-to gift ideas! These holiday earrings are such a statement piece, and are a great beginner project if you are new to resin crafting. I love how these earrings turned out, and am excited to share them as gifts for friends to wear all winter long!

To make your own sets of resin holiday earrings, you will need these supplies:

Resin Holiday Earrings

Prepare about 1 ounce of EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy according to package directions. Be sure to protect your workspace, work in a well-ventilated area, and wear disposable gloves. Pour in equal parts of resin and hardener to the mixing cup. Slowly stir the resin mixture together with a stir stick for two minutes. Pour the resin into a clean mixing cup. Stir the resin mixture again for another minute or two with a clean stir stick until evenly incorporated.

Split the resin equally into two mixing cups. In one cup, add in a little bit of green resin powder and some fine green glitter (optional), and some Bronze Metallic resin powder to the other cup of resin. Stir the resin mixtures slowly until the powder is combined with the resin.

Use a stir stick to carefully fill the reindeer earring mold with the bronze resin, and the other tree earring mold with the green resin. Pop any bubbles that rise to the top using a heat gun or by blowing through a straw. You could also lightly spritz the mold with 91% alcohol to remove surface bubbles.

Leave the resin to cure in an undisturbed, well ventilated area for 24 hours. You will know that the resin is completely cured when it is no longer tacky to the touch.

Carefully remove each of the reindeer earring pieces from the mold. Trim away any excess resin with scissors or a craft knife. I am loving how the Bronze Metallic resin powder shimmers in the light. So perfect for magical reindeer earrings, don't you think?

I gasped when I removed the tree earrings from the mold. The brilliant green resin powder combined with the sparkling glitter is simply breathtaking - much like a Christmas tree!

To transform these resin pieces into earrings, you will need to gather your jewelry supplies: jump ringsearring hooks, and jewelry pliers. Use the jewelry pliers to turn the loop on the earring hooks 90º.  This will make it so that the earrings hang right when they're being worn! These can be kind of fragile, so work carefully.

Open the jump rings and hook them through the holes of the resin earrings. Attach the earring hooks to the jump ring and make sure they are completely closed so that they don't come off!

I am loving these reindeer earrings SO much, and think they are so fun to wear, especially to dress up a playful holiday outfit or an "ugly" sweater! The earrings are shimmery metallic, and are so beautiful when they hit the light.

The tree earrings are a more traditional holiday earring design, and would definitely dress up any holiday outfit! I am so excited how both sets of earrings turned out, and it made me so happy to give them as gifts to some friends. If you haven't given resin a try yet, I definitely recommend it!!

I would love to hear what you think about these resin holiday earrings! As always, if you make any of these projects for yourself, I'd love to see your creations! Tag me on Instagram and Facebook, or leave a comment/photo on the project pin on Pinterest!
