EEK! Table Confetti Earrings!

I often use some table confetti I got at a garage sale as a photo prop and was constantly having to remove these pesky spiders from my pretty pile.

I considered tossing them in the trash then it dawned on me some folks would actually like spider earrings for trick or treat.  Since there was a learning curve how to punch a tiny hole in each spider I ruined a bunch of them.  Usually it would grieve me to ruin something but I was emptying the jar!

I have a tiny hole punch and discovered the plastic collapsed when I punched it. From past experience I know sometimes you need a paper cushion to get a clean punch….it worked.

Put the confetti spider in between a piece of paper that has been folded.  Hold the paper up to light to see the silhouette.

Now you can use a tiny punch to see exactly where to punch it.

Now the spider is ready for jump rings and you can use chains or eyepins like I did.

Spiders make me say EEK in real life, but someone will like these for their trick or treat outfit.

Since I had witches in the confetti I decided to try the same trick to turn these into trick or treat earrings.
