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
  • Scarves
  • Shirt collars
  • Waist belts
  • Clutch / Purse

 

What clothing items would you decorate with sparkly clip-ons?

  1. My mother used to do this with her shoes!!

  2. You forgot – Clip-on earrings can also be recycled into Cuff Links.

  3. I’d use them as button covers on a silk blouse to sparkle it up. And knowing me, I’d probably do the same thing on a denim blouse.

  4. Make a brooch or hair clips….take them apart at the base and make bracelets or glue the pretty parts for rings or clip them onto necklaces, add them to napkin rings for added sparkle…
