Blinged: Dress Up Your Fridge!

created at: 01/17/2011

Megan, whose thriftastic office we featured last week, has created some of the most clever - and prettiest - magnets you've ever seen!

If you've ever been to a thrift store or an estate sale, chances are you've seen some pretty sweet clip-on earrings.  Costume jewelry was all the rage at some point in time, apparently, and lucky for you Megan Jeyifo, of Urban Casita and ReadyMade fame, has figured out a new use for these sparkly baubles: super fancy magnets!

created at: 01/17/2011

It's a simple project and only involves a couple of steps: pop off the backs of your jeweled earrings/broaches with wire cutters, then attach a magnet with super glue.  Presto!  You've got yourself a blinged out fridge magnet.  Mega impact for the absolute minimum amount of effort.  Or, in other words, my kind of DIY project.

I was just researching if anyone else is doing this - you are! I think it's a great idea. Recycle the possibilities are glamorous!

Great idea!  I love reusing vintage jewelry, too.
