Looking for some inexpensive, yet unique Christmas gift ideas to bestow upon your fellow fashionista friends? You’ve come to the right place! What could be a better stocking stuffer than a stunning vintage-inspired bling ring? Follow the steps below to transform your trash into treasure. ________________________________________________________
You will need:
-Old clip on earrings or lightweight vintage brooches.
-Needle-nose jewelry plyers. (Available at Wal-Mart or any craft store.)
-Gold and silver ring backs. (Available at craft stores like A.C. Moore and Michael’s.)
-Strong jewelry or craft glue.
Using the needle-nose plyers, pry off sharp brooch pins or earring backs.
Carefully read the directions on your package of glue before opening for any safety instructions. Glue a ring back onto the back of the brooch or pin. Be sure to keep in mind how the ring will sit on your finger so you can glue on the ring back in a proper position.
Let the ring dry overnight, or however long the instructions suggest. Your bauble is now ready to wear! ____________________________________________________________________________________
