How to Make Faux Silver Earrings

Just looking at these beautiful faux silver earrings. I am not sure you would guess the material they are made out of. Would you be surprised if I told you they were made out of hot glue and not silver at all? This month I am joining a group of Craft Lightning Bloggers who are creating 15-minute crafts using hot glue as their medium. These earrings are really quick and easy to make and take much less than 15 minutes without the drying time - which really doesn't take much more time! Read through the tutorial below and see how easy they are to make.

The process for these faux silver earrings is really quick and easy. I think the small size of the earring makes them more believable as real silver earrings.
