I saw the cutest bright colored metal earrings at a boutique a few months ago. I searched and searched for similar supplies to make my own but just couldn't find anything. Then I had an epiphany while spray painting.
(Of course this idea could entirely be a result of sniffing too many paint fumes.)
Why not spray paint earrings?
I headed off to Hobby Lobby and picked up some supplies.
This particular brand was on sale for 50% off so I snagged several earring hooks...
And some other jewelry and beading supplies.
I started with the metal squares.
I gave each side a single coat of Rustoleum spray paint.
Then attached the wire earring hooks with just a pair of plyers.
I just used spray paint I had on hand, but I am totally going to make more and pick up some turquoise spray paint. Wouldn't turquoise be lovely?
Here's a peak at the feather earrings.
I love how these turned out, and they were super cheap to make.
Not including the paint, the metal square earrings ended up costing about .88 cents a pair, and the feather earrings about .43 cents a pair. (before sales tax.)
Wouldn't these be such a cute gift or party favor?
I never buy earrings anymore, I always make them. Even without the spray paint, they are so much cheaper to make on your own.
