In my defence they were only 10 bucks! Anyway, after wondering what on earth to do with this particular impulse purchase I had a light bulb moment – EARRINGS! They were super easy to do and best of all, cheap. Here is what you need:
- Strawberry hair clips (or buttons, charms etc) - These ones are fairly big and they have a nice flat back which makes them perfect for something like this.
- Earring backs - You can buy these in most crafting stores for relatively cheap.
- Super glue
First things first, remove the hair-clip part. This does make the back of these particular earrings a little less than neat but seeing it’ll be attached to my ear I am not too concerned:
Add a little super glue to the earring backs and attach to the strawberry:
And now you have earrings!! Or in my case, 5 pairs of different coloured strawberries:
Like I mentioned before, I think this would work equally well with buttons or charms provided the back is flat enough to attach the earring part. Let me know if any of you give it a try:)
