Beginner level, great way to add pizzazz to your outfits and a perfect gift for your favorite lady! #diybeadedearrings #crochetearrings I have this thing about beads and yarn. It’s just a winning combination. You might remember years ago that I made about a gazillion beaded knit necklaces for me and pretty much every woman that I know. Which is why, when DMC contacted me to try out their new cotton perlè embroidery thread, I knew that I had to make some funky DIY beaded crochet earrings.

Cotton Perlè

If you want to go right to the earring tutorial, just scroll down to the instructions and video.

Like I said, DMC contacted me to try out their new Cotton Perlè embroidery thread. (I did NOT get paid for this post, and everything I write is my own opinion.) This thread was already a staple in the DMC line in thicknesses 8 and 5, but now it is also available in size 3, which is a nice, thick thread that is similar to a thin cotton yarn.

You can use it for embroidery, and the thickness creates a 3D effect. You can also crochet with it, weave it, wrap it around other object, and so on. It really can be used in so many interesting ways!

I received various colors and thicknesses of embroidery thread, a few embroidery patterns and other craft instructions, an embroidery hoop, a pre-printed tote bag to be stitched on, an earring kit, #22 chenille needles, a water soluble marking pen, and a crochet hook perfect for this new embroidery thread.

The box is a limited edition of six colors of size 8 single strand embroidery thread*. The skeins are the classic size 5 embroidery thread*, and the new size 3 embroidery thread*.

Remove the needle, then follow the instructions in the video, or scroll below the video for the written instructions.

  1. Hold the hoop wrong side up. Pull the thread up through the hoop and make 1 slip stitch.
  2. Work 1 sc (single crochet), slide one bead up against the sc, and chain 1. 
  3. Repeat step 2 all around the whole hoop.
  4. After the last chain 1, do 1 slip stitch around the hoop.
  5. Cut the thread loop and, using the chenille needle, thread the end under a few crochet stitches.
