Clip-on earrings have so many uses. Okay, I know what you’re thinking- “Really, clip-on earrings?” Yes! Clip-on earrings are making a huge comeback and best of all, you can make a pair yourself without ever leaving home!
If you’re ready to start creating your own fabulous accessories but don’t have any clip-on earrings, don’t worry! I usually get an old pair from my grandmother or mom, but have also found some great hidden vintage treasures at garage sales and thrift stores. If buying used isn’t your thing, the website Emitations offers affordable clip-on earrings in current and trendy styles.
To make your own trendy clip-ons, you’ll need:
- Needle-nose pliers
- An old pair of clip-on earrings
Using pliers, simply bend the clip to make it as flush as possible to the earring back. If the clip is not flush with the back, you may experience some uncomfortable rubbing.
Add your new clip-ons to:
- Heels / Wedges
- Shirt collars
- Waist belts
- Clutch / Purse
What clothing items would you decorate with sparkly clip-ons?
