So I got the bright idea redo a pair of earrings! I know, I know decoupaged earrings are nothing new, but I have this great orange striped shirt that I love and I thought I would change the look of a pair of earrings I no longer wear to match it. Here’s how I did it!
Decoupage Earring updo
Materials: An old pair of earrings, fabric ( I used an old scarf), Mod Podge, sponge applicator, rotary cutter & mat, X-Acto Knife and sharp scissors.
Take the hook off your earring. Choose an area of the pattern on your scarf and lay the earring over it. Use your rotary cutter and cut around the earring, (it doesn’t have to be exact). Paint Mod Podge with sponge onto the earring, (I painted the back sides of the earrings in case I wanted to turn them around and use them with the pattern already on them). Lay the fabric over the earring and smooth out the bubbles. Paint Mod Podge over the top of the fabric.
~Now the scarf I used was a really thin fabric and didn’t look as bright as I thought it would, so I cut out another circle and laid it over the first layer of fabric and the second layer of Mod Podge. I did not cover the second layer of fabric with Mod Podge. I just liked the texture and vibrancy of the fabric unsealed better.
Let them both dry a little and while they are still damp to the touch take an X-Acto knife and cut out the center of the earring. Take sharp scissors and trim the outside edges. Put the hook back on and that’s it! They are too cute and match perfectly to my new shirt!
