DIY Christmas Cake Earrings

I cut these Christmas Cake earrings from 1/4” Revolution Plywood from Lowe’s. Believe it or not I was actually able to get almost fifty pairs of earrings out of this one piece of scrap wood. The earrings ended up being about 1.5” tall and all I had to do was add hooks that I bought from Amazon.

Using a Camera with my Thunder Laser

I actually upgraded my Thunder Laser Nova 24 by mounting a camera to the underside of the lid. This allows me to see a real time image of the scrap wood on the cutting bed of the laser. I then lay out the earrings on the areas of the wood that remain. This allows me to use up all the space on the wood that I can while also planning ahead on how many earrings I am able to cut out.

How to Use These Earrings

The options for what you can do with these earrings really are endless! You could sell the earrings unfinished to a crafter to paint. If you’d like to cut earrings in bulk, offer unfinished earrings in bulk to your buyer. If painting is your favorite part, paint these earring cutouts and sell them. You could make your money back quickly due to how many you can cutout at one time.
