Glitter and Glitz Earrings

All Amazon links are my affiliate links!


These earrings that I made with the supplies that Banglewood Crafts sent me for review are just too fun!  They dangle, they sparkle, they have glitz, and they have glamour!

What's my honest review in a nutshell?  Well, they are a blast!  

I was a little undecided what I wanted to do with the earrings at first, I could stain them, paint them, I could even decoupage them.  In the end I fell for the glitz and glam of glitter.  I really wanted to pick up the Martha Stewart Neon Glitter Pack, but my thriftiness got the better of me and I settled for Walmart's cheapest neon glitter in stock.  (And yes, the cheap stuff works just fine!)  While there I picked up some good old fashioned Mod Podge too (although in this case Amazon's price was a tad better, but they change all of the time).

These are the "Before" earrings.  They really are a beautiful blank canvass!

The process was quite simple: a layer of Mod Podge then a layer of glitter until well coated.  It did take a while because I had to wait for the Mod Podge to dry.  Then I just added some wire and a shepherd's hook earring.  

So, what do you think of them?  Need to get some for yourself?  You can get the wood blanks from their Etsy Shop {here}.
