Glitter Earrings {DIY and giveaway!}

March 13th, 2012 § 25 comments

I love how Pinterest has opened my eyes to a whole new world of DIY projects and ideas.  And, since my DIY board is in front of me every day, I’m far more likely to complete the projects that I find!  For example, I first saw Ali’s DIY of these gold glitter earrings a few days ago, and luckily had everything I needed to already make a pair {or four!} of my own.  Here’s what I did:

1. Since I didn’t have gold buttons, I instead raided the hundreds of random buttons that I do have in order to find a few that matched in size and shape.  Then I spray painted them gold – first on one side, then the other – and let them dry.

2. Then I took my newly gold buttons and filled their centers with a little bit of gold glitter glue.  Since I wanted an extra glittery look, I then used a pair of tweezers to help me dip the wet-glue filled buttons into loose gold glitter.  After shaking off any excess, I allowed them to dry.

3. To keep the glitter from flaking off in the future, I then painted the glitter side of the buttons with a thin coat of clear nail polish and allowed them to dry further.

4. Finally I attached earring backs to the back of the glitterized buttons and tah-dah: my very own glitter earrings!

I love the way they turned out, and I’ll definitely show you them again in an upcoming outfit post!

As you can see above, I made four pairs – and it would just be silly of me to keep them all for myself!!  Therefore I’m giving away a pair to one of you!!  You can choose which size you’d like – S, M or L (as can be seen above), and I’ll mail them to you wherever you are!  To enter:

  1. Follow she is red on BloglovinFacebook, or Twitter!  Then leave a comment on this post saying which media you follow the blog on {along with your email, so I can contact the winner}.  That’s it!
  2. For additional entries, follow she is red on any combination of BloglovinFacebookTwitter  AND Pinterest, and then leave a comment for each additional media you’re following on.  (So if you follow on Facebook and Twitter, leave two comments, and so on).
  3. That means you can enter up to four times – yippee!!
  4. I will choose a winner at random next Wednesday, March 21!
Good luck loves!! xxx

*Update*: The winner of her very own pair of Glitter Earrings (based on the random number generated by random.org) is the lovely Miss Anna Chase!!!  Congrats Anna!! xxx
