Create Earrings Out of Magazines!

When my J.Crew lookbook arrives in the mail, I immediately perk up. I love getting this in the mail! If I could insert myself into the catalog and put on all of the clothing, I would be one happy lady. All of the lovely colors, patterns, and textures just draw me in.

As I thumbed through the Spring lookbook, I came across a  patterned dress that seriously caught my eye. The floral pattern on this dress was vintage, yet modern. The color combo was stunning. This dress inspired me so much that I decided to do a DIY project using the picture of the dress from my lookbook!

I took the picture of the J.Crew dress that inspired me and turned it into stud earrings. I can now wear the very pattern I was drawn to, but on my ears! I love it when recycling can be turned into something functional AND pretty. I could create an entire earring line just from my 2014 J.Crew Spring lookbook! Just think of all of the fun you could have with this DIY project!

    I have a questions. Have you ever had the dimensional paint ripple or wrinkle? I made these and I am not sure what I did wrong. These earrings are so beautiful!

      Thanks for stopping by, Stephanie! I figured if J.Crew isn’t in my budget, I may as well try to get the look and feel of it. :) Hmm…I’ve never had that happen. I have, however, noticed a little ripple action if you blow on it too hard. Also, it could have been too thick?
