The secret: a set of fingernail glitters, which I found at the dollar store.
Read on for the easy peasy DIY!
Buy two sets, so you'll have matching color pairs.
Seal the stoppers shut with clear silicone glue. Let dry overnight.
Tip: I tried super glue as well, and it gave a good hold. But for some reason it fogged up the glass. Stick with silicone, is my advice!
Open the loop on an earwire finding. (Twist it sideways, don't pull it straight out.)
Slip your glitter bottle into the loop and twist closed.
If you have two ears, repeat for a second earring. Voila.
The same general idea can be fancied up in lots of ways. Here's a cool dangly collar, which I made from a taken-apart vintage necklace.
In the same way I opened and closed the loops on the earring findings, I simply opened and closed the ready-made loops on the beaded chain. Easy!
And in case you missed my previous post, you can turn the bottles into the world's tiniest glitter bottle ornaments.
Hope you liked this simple idea! If you're anything like me, at this time of year, simple is a watchword, a philosophy and a plan.
See you again soon for a new Mystery Thing challenge!
