Rings to pins

Abby has a favorite little shop at the mall. :) It's called Glitter, and sells inexpensive costume jewelry and other accessories. Having just survived, er, finished Dance Recital nights, she and I took a little trip to get a pair of new summer sandals for her (hers were way too small!) and then popped in to Glitter as a little treat. :) With most of the jewelry costing only $1, it's the stuff a 6 year old girly girl dreams of! While she was poring over the tables of ring trays I noticed that some of the bigger rings could be pretty brooches. I love to wear scarves, so wouldn't it be fun to bling a few of them up?

Abby found two small rings and a necklace with a peace symbol on it. In the end I picked up these three rings. Not bad for $1 each, huh?

After a little bit of prying, I got the ring backs off. Then I grabbed some small pin backs and my trusty E-6000 glue!

And glued the pins on. I let the pins set up overnight just to be on the safe side.

And ta-da! Some pretty, inexpensive brooches to wear!


  1. They're absolutely gorgeous, Melanie! I especially love the one with the bee on it! It looks beautiful on your pretty yellow scarf!...Nancy :o)

  2. What a great and inexpensive idea, those are the best kind.

  3. So cute! We walked right by Glitter today. I had no idea they had rings for $1. Love that idea :)
