Repurposing your jewelry!

This week I’ve got a bit of the spring cleaning and organizing bug,
so I’ve been going through all my things and separating out stuff for reuse, garbage, and goodwill.

 

I started with my jewelry and made an earring holder
then¬†I got an idea when I saw these earrings I bought years ago…
I’ve always loved the shape of them, but over time they tarnished and just couldn’t be cleaned up.
So instead of throwing them out, I spray painted them!

 

I just removed the earring holder, gave the trees a couple coats of paint, let them dry, and voila!

 

 

Aren’t they pretty!
I love a good upcycle!

 

 

Got old jewelry…got spray paint?
You’ve got new accessories!

 

Have a great day!

    I’m a big fan of coral, and a big fan of turquoise, so those earrings are right up my alley! If you ever get tired of them … you just let me know. HAHA

    Great idea. I would have thrown them away when they look tarnished.
