a pretty cool life.: What I did with the grandma bling

What I did with the grandma bling


Remember when I showed you this jar full of happy?  Well, I finally got around to using them. 


I made them the same way I made these push pins, but carefully cut the clips off the earrings first.





Use a pair of snips...don't try to just pull the clip off. 

Trust me.


And there you go.  Grandma bling repurposed and put to good use.

Those vintage button push pins were popular last year, so sets of the grandma bling will be showing up in the shop soon, too.


Happy weekend, everyone!
