Disinfected, Sanitized, and Beauti-fied

Before:  $.50 purchased at a local thrift store (1 inch hoops).


After: A beautiful "new" pair of earrings to match my baby blue prairie skirt this summer.


Thank you Beansie Babbles Blogspot!  You were my inspiration.  If you haven't visited her site, you should.  Lots of inspiration there.

They are beautiful! I wouldn't have thought of crocheting over hoops like that. Did you use a crochet hook?

Hi Kristina-
those earrings are just too cute!
I'll have to try those out for sure-- not for me; but for my daughters.
I'm more of a stud earring gal {smile}

Wow! I would never have thought of that although I don't wear any nowadays.

What an awesome idea! Did you use a dab of glue to get the ends tucked in and prevent sliding off?

Kristina said...

Yes, I used a clear strong craft glue. I think it was E6000 glue.
