Easy, Wire Heart Earrings: DIY

And the Hearts continue.
If you are just joining in,  every DIY I do  from now  until February 14, will have a heart in it.
I am having so much fun coming up with new ideas.

Things you need.
  1. 20 Gauge Wire *Wal-mart or Michaels
  2. Pliers
 Cut your wire about  3 1/2 to 4 inches long.

 Make a V

 Shape your wire like a heart.

  I lift up the middle and using my pliers,  twist the middle over itself.

 Like the picture above.
The wire is very forgiving so you can shape it pretty easily.

Then on one side, using my pliers, I curled it up.

Then repeat with the other wire.

I have a couple of other shapes I am experimenting with.
Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Lots of <3,
