How to Make Earrings From Price Tags-DIY

Hi everyone, although I am mostly into eye makeup tutes these days, but I  can’t stop me from doing another love of my life, DIY jewellery!  I hope you will find this DIY interesting. My sis recently gifted me a red satin clutch purse from an online store and I am totally in love with it. So much so that I didn’t even want to throw away the plastic price tag that came with it. Sounds crazy right?? Well, I admit I do indulge in craziness quite often ;) anyway, for these earrings you would need:

1. Any price tag. ( it would be better if it’s of plastic, but cardboard ones would also do).
2. Nail paints of your choice.
3. Wire.
4. Two beads.
5. An empty pen refill ( or a nail art dotting tool if you are a lucky one).

Step one:

Firstly, peel off the sticker from the tag

Step two:

Immerse the tag in water and rub out the remaining parts of the sticker

Step three:

Cut out the tag in desired shapes. I have cut out rectangles.
Step four:

Use a nail paint in solid color to draw stripes on the rectangles. I have used red.

Step five:

Next, use a different nail color and fill in the gaps with it. I have used a purple.

Step six:

Now make dots with white nail polish using an empty pen refill.

Step seven:

Pierce a hole with a needle on the top of the rectangle.

Step eight:

Now put the wire through the hole.

Step nine:

Hold both ends of the wire and put a large bead through it.

Step ten:

Twist one of the wire end around the other ( refer to pic).

Step eleven:

Bend the other end of the wire to make a hook.

And this is how it looks when worn :)

Reply

aparajita February 9, 2013 at 11:45 am

thanks sweets! :) apply grey all over upper eyelids. don’t go beyond the crease. use the black to create a “>” on the outer part of the upper eyelid and blend it inside with the grey. use the white as hghlightr below brow bone and the silver as the highlighter in the inner corner of the eyes :) hope it hepls
