DIY – Pussy Willow / Mgambo Seed Earrings (or purchase on Etsy)

Categories: DIY + How To, Fashion + Trends

I love Pussy Willows and Forsythia, having grown up in eastern Pennsylvania, these two spring branch (flowering) plants were spring bouquet staples. This week, it’s all pussy willows or as they are also known Mgambo seeds.

I saw these earrings online and thought… DIY! (So if any of you decide to make some, post photos in the comment section!)

Here is a similarĀ basic double-drop earring design (and links to supplies) that can be easily adapted to make a similar pussy willow earring. I also found you a great deal on Mgambo seeds, 50 seeds for $26 +$2.50 shipping, dried and pre-drilled. That’s the makings for 12 pairs of earrings with 4 PW seeds per earring.

If the idea of making your own earrings sounds like too much work, you can buy them from Etsy for $30 + $5 shipping
