raffia woven earrings

The natural fiber of raffia adds a unique touch to these trendy earrings! Make a unique pair in a neutral or metallic for yourself and/or friends!
Step 1

Measure and cut about 36" [91.4 cm] of raffia. Fold in half to find the mid point.

Step 2

Thread two size connector rings onto one end of the raffia and slide them down to the fold at the center.

Step 3

Arrange the rings so the smaller one is inside the larger one and aligned so they are touching in one place, which will be the top of your earring.
TIP: You should have an equal length of raffia on each side of the rings.

Step 4

Take the raffia on the right side, weave it over the top of the right ring, then thread it through the middle of the rings and arrange so it is coming out through the left side. Now, take the raffia on the left side, weave it over the top of the left ring, then thread it through the middle of the rings and arrange so it is coming out through the right side. Pull the crisscrossed raffia tight.
TIP: The raffia that started on the left side is now in the right and vice versa.

Step 5

Repeat Step 4 until raffia is woven all the way around the rings.
TIP: Cut a small piece of wire and wrap around the rings where they are touching to help hold together as you are weaving. Clip wire when they feel secure.

Step 6

Tie the ends in a knot on the back. Trim the ends and use hot glue to secure.

Step 7

Carefully open the loop at the end of a fishhook earring, just enough to slide around the top ring, then close the loop.

Step 8
Repeat for a second earring.
