DIY Ankara Print Fabric Bead Earrings

There's nothing I love more than using up every last scrap of my beautiful african print fabrics. This time around I made fabric bead earrings because I like to surround myself in the colorful ankara fabric every chance I get. This is a super easy project that you can bang out in under 30 minutes. That includes drying time.

I basically just rolled up some triangles and attached earring hooks. I made a small and a medium template you can use if you'd like to save some time. The largest was the first pair I made and I did it freehand which is always an option too.

The large orange pair measures 6" finished.
The medium blue pair measures 5½" finished.
The short black and yellow pair measures 4½" finished.
