Recently, I went down to my local Claire's and bought a ton of stud earrings (3x2!). I've got a total of five holes in my ears (had more but took them out due to constant infections), which means I regularly use studs...and sometimes lose them. So I bought about 30 pairs of earrings the other day, and then got home to this:
Instead of chucking this and buying another one, how about we revamp what we already got? All you need is a can of spray paint, some glitter, superglue and rhinestones!
Here we go. I chose a nice matte teal spray for the base:
|It was an ugly, rainy day out on my balcony...|
|Be patient as the paint dries and make sure to|
cover up all the nooks and crannies with several coats!
I spread a thin layer of superglue over the petals and dumped some glitter on there. Yeah! In hindsight, I should've put a piece of paper under this in order to save the excess glitter but I was too excited and it slipped my mind. Always think things through, people!
Add a pretty yellow rhinestone as a final touch!
Here we go: a revamped oldie, ready for a brand new life of joy and bling! We really don't need to throw out old things, now do we?
How's it look? I absolutely love it! Have you revamped any of your old favorites?
