Recycled Gift Card Christmas Earrings

This Christmas save some green with eco-friendly projects. If you're looking for Christmas jewelry ideas, look no further than Recycled Gift Card Christmas Earrings. This is a great excuse to reuse those gift cards you no longer want or need.

Recycled Gift Card Christmas Earrings


  • Zero balance gift card
  • 2 ear loop wires
  • 2 head pins
  • 4 small beads
  • 2 medium beads
  • 6 jump rings
  • Sharp scissors
  • Drill with 1/16” drill bit or 1/8” hole puncher
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutter


  1. Cut two rectangles from the gift card. The earrings shown are approximately 1 inch wide by 1.5 inches tall.
  2. Drill or punch a hole near the top and the bottom of each rectangle.
  3. Using your head pins, thread 3 beads on each head pin and close with a loop at the top.
  4. Open all 6 jump rings.
  5. Link 1 jump ring to the ear loop wire and close.
  6. Attach a second jump ring to the first jump ring and the top of the card rectangle. Close jump ring.
  7. Attach the closed head pin with beads to the bottom of the card rectangle with a third jump ring. Close jump ring.
  8. Repeat for the other earring.
  9. Optional: Instead of cutting out 2 rectangles, try other shapes such as a guitar pick or a square/diamond shape. If you don’t have a drill, use a small 1/8” hole puncher instead.
