This is a story that began a long time ago. Perhaps four years ago. One of my bff’s bought me these awesome magnets… maybe for a bridesmaid gift? I don’t remember, exactly. (Megan, verify?!) Of course I loved them, because they sparkled and had glitter and all that goodness. Being the kind of person that has a hard time buying a $5 marker, I couldn’t quite wrap my head around buying more. And yet, I felt the need in my heart for more. You know, like people do.
Fast forward to almost-two years ago to the morning of my wedding, when Aunt Amy showed up and gifted me with Grandma’s jewelry box. Mind you, Grandma passed away in 2000, some 12ish years earlier. Aunt Amy was holding on to these treats that entire time. Which means she’s awesome. In this glorious box of jewels, I found treasures galore! Rings! Necklaces! Earrings! The only problem with these earrings is that they were all clip-ons.
DO YOU SEE WHERE I AM GOING WITH THIS?!?
Clip-on earrings >>>> Anthropologie knock-off magnets. Sorry if I just blew your mind for a second. I’ll give it some time to recover.
First and longest step? Heat up the glue gun.
Now, gather fun earrings. (Actually, that sparkly one on the top right is a shoe clip. Those work, too. Or you could even use a brooch.)Then, remove any of the clips from the clip-on thingamajig.
Take a magnet. (Here’s an affiliate link for you: BYKES 10 Neodymium Magnets Strong Magnets Refrigerator Magnets Super Strong Rare Earth Magnets 1/2 x 1/4 x 1/8 inch Ring N48 )
Glue magnet to the back.
Let it set up.
Curious to know which ones were Anthropologie, and which ones I made? I made the top ones. The bottom row is all anthro. Yay.Linking up with Upcycled Treasures! Burlap and Babies! Thrifty Decor Chick!
