EarringsSo I got the bright idea makeover 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


Easy decoupage earring


cut fabric to decoupageRemove the hooks off your earrings. Choose an area of  the pattern on your scarf and lay the earring over it. Use a rotary cutter and cut around the earring, it doesn’t have to be an exact cut.

Paint earring with decoupagePaint decoupage medium with a sponge onto the earring. Lay the fabric over the earring and smooth out any bubbles. Paint more decoupage over the top of the fabric.

Note: 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 decoupage. 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!
