Make Your Own Neon Pink Earrings

DIY - make your own neon pink earings

I spotted a gorgeous pair of neon pink drop earrings at a shop at the V&A Waterfront. Of course it was way too expensive for my likings, but it got me thinking. Surely I could make my own? I had bought the most amazing neon pink spray paint from Shelf Life in Bree Street (Cape Town) and was itching to spray stuff with it, so naturally this DIY project would be the perfect task. Here is how I did it.

Tools needed:
Pair of inexpensive drop earrings (these are from Mr Price)
Neon pink spray paint
Old newspaper

The Process:
Step 1: Cover all work surfaces in the newspaper.
Step 2: Cover the posts of your earrings with a little tape (so as to prevent the paint from adhering)
Step 3: Spray your earrings with the crazy neon paint. Remembering to use lots of light coats. Leave each coat to dry thoroughly before applying another – this will make the finish much neater.
Step 4: Leave to dry completely.

Voila – you have a super glamorous pair of killer neon pink drop earrings!

Delicious Accessories

I have no recollection of how I got to Miam’s website. I often click on a zillion links to read later when I am madly busy with work (serious work avoidance syndrome). For my sins I have spent the better part of the day working up quite a sweet tooth ogling over her amazing little creations.

They all look so delicious and totally edible, thankfully accessorizing with one of these cute teatime treats won’t cost you any extra calories. However, it will be a nagging reminder of the inevitable and before you know it you find yourself standing in the queue at Woolies with a basket full of pastries.

Anyhow, who cares – you only live once after all. May as well have your cake and wear it!

The weather in Cape Town is pretty miserable today and in a sad attempt to cheer myself up I went hunting for fabulously sparkly things. Tearose Workshop have some really dainty and special pieces that you simply have to check out.
