Embroidered plastic canvas earrings

1. Cut the canvas to size.
2. Use sandpaper to smooth the cut edges.
3. Using embroidery thread, sew a design of your choice. I used cross stitch and a simple diagonal stitch for my design, in shades of pink and red.

4. Trim off any loose ends, and paint a little Mod Podge or glue on the back of the embroidered area, so it does not come undone.
5. Bend a loop at the end of a piece of wire, and thread the canvas on.
6. Thread a matching bead on, and make a loop at the other end of the wire, so you can attach it to a kidney wire.

These could be made in a whole host of different colours and patterns!
