Do your old hoop earrings need a makeover? Why not turn them into mini dreamcatchers?!

A super-simple technique of wrapping this bright neon cord around the hoop frame creates a funky bohemian accessory, that’s perfect for summer’s upcoming music festivals and beach days. Are we ready?!

Step 1: Gather materials. You will need large hoop earrings, Pandahall Rainbow Nylon cord, Elements of Antiquity pewter peace charm, scissors, jump rings and a feather.

Start by cutting a length of the nylon cord (I used about 2 feet for these larger hoops). Tie an overhand knot behind the back of the earring, securing the thread on. With the left side of the string (the right is just excess after the knot, you won’t be needing it so you can cut it off now if you want) wrap around the front of the hoop, around the back, then over the front most string to create a loop. Repeat again.

Do this about five times (may change depending on size of hoop. Then repeat process, but wrapping around the inner string as opposed to the hoop earring. Keep going in a spiral pattern until you’ve got no more space left.

Tie off string into a knot to finish the end. Burn the ends of the starting knot and this knot to secure. Add your peace charm and feather (I added a cord end to the feather) to the very center of the dreamcatcher.

For those of you that aren’t into large hoops, use a smaller size and wrap accordingly. Also, if you’re not digging the bright rainbow colors (why??!!) feel free to use any of these cool colors Pandahall has to offer. Peace out!
