Woman Makes Dollar Store Fingerboard Earrings and They’re Too Cute

Any fingerboard fans would proudly rock this.

So, you’re someone who is a bit nerdy, who is into something that is pretty ‘pop-culture’, and you want something to represent that. But, for one reason or another, you simply can’t find anything that you love, or even like, in the store. Nothing to represent the interest that you have, not even close. So what do you do?

Well, if you’re Alexis Clark aka IllAlwaysBeeAHippie over on TikTok, you go ahead and just make some cute and nerdy crafts for yourself!


Now, Alexis likes things that are a bit nerdy, and a bit out there, meaning that when she came across some adorable little finger boards at her local Dollar Tree, she immediately knew what she wanted to do with them.

Of course play with them, the way they were meant to be played with, duh. But she didn’t stop there! You see, these miniature skateboards were the perfect size to turn into earrings, making them double as both decoration and tiny toys you could take with you everywhere. And it didn’t even take a ton of work to complete said transformation!

All Alexis had to do was grab some earring slides, aka the part that actually goes through your ear, and drill super tiny holes through the top of each fingerboard. Then the earring’s ring just gets looped through and closed, and voila - instant earrings.

To be fair, I’m not sure this is the greatest idea in the world. Not because it isn’t the absolute coolest thing I’ve seen in a while, but because I’d constantly be sitting down somewhere and taking my earring out to board for a bit. Doctor’s office, movie theater, car - wherever I am, you’d know I’d be skatin!
