I love to upcycle.  Upcycling is when you find old junk and give it new use and meaning.  I went to a garage sale over the weekend and found these awesome clip on earrings.

I wasn’t interested in wearing them as earrings, but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with them. I thought they would make a great detail on a boho bag, on a jacket lapel, or even on a headband.  Well why not do them all?

First I removed the clips.

Then I used E6000 glue to secure a pin back finding.

The pin back is great because you can attach it to a purse, jacket, or headband and change it up whenever you want.

I decided to put in on my purse next to my handmade ribbon flower. What do you think?
