I am fairly ambivalent about valentines day, lucky readers,
fun fact about me: I once worked a midnight to 7 am shift at Edible Arrangements JUST drizzling strawberries to meet the Valentine’s Day demand…and you just don’t leave that experience as a normal human being. My chocolate strawberries are en flique which is good because my brows defs aren’t right now.
moral of the story is I can take or leave the love holiday. Bae knows by now that every day is Lindsey day (and vice versa :D)
BUT but but I love dressing up. So if Valentine’s date night is my ticket to glam then I’m on board.
so in case you needed some ideas for date night, a classy AF Galentine gift, or you’re reading this in the middle of June and are just feelin straight up frisky, make some of these sequin ear crawlers. I give you permission to be the human definition of G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S.
Imma go put some Fergie on now k byeee
Sequin Ear Crawlers How-to
use glue to fix the ball end of the head pin into the center of flat pad post. let dry
Use pliers to bend the head pin in a loose curve, to match the line of your ear. Then apply a strip of glue along the front side of the head pin and line with sequins. let dry This will dictate the length of your crawler, though you can always trim later.
don’t worry excessively about excess glue, you can use scissors to trim off chunks later if it is impacting the aesthetic.
If your sequins are especially small, pour some into a small tray and just press wire in wet glue side down rather than attempting to stack them individually
Trim off any excess head pin wire. Fill in empty spaces with additional sequins as desired.
