Can't Believe I Never Thought of This!!

The electricians had to kill the power for about 5 hours today so I had some time on my hands.  After the power ran out on my laptop I realized since the panel box was outside I didn't have to stick around so what is a great idea to do when in a few hours you are going to be writing a $1600.00 check?  Go shopping!

I managed to get the 30% off code for Kohl's this time so I figured I would put it to good use!


Now while in Kohl's I kinda had a duh moment.  I haven't been able to wear pierced earrings for at least 15 years.  And I don't care what you say, when you can find them the clip earrings just aren't that cute.  I usually end up with two pair of silver that I rotate.


I noticed these while looking through the clearance and the idea hit me!  I have clip findings at home so I looked at the post thinking that if they were at the top I could at least cut it down with wire cutters. All of these had posts at the top and most of them came off cleanly.


Then I glued the clip findings with E6000.


For the first time in a very long time I have 4 brand new pretty earrings!  And at a great price!



Check out all of the places I party here!

  1. Where did you get the clip-on pieces from? I also don't wear pierced earrings, and this is a great idea, but I've never seen just the clip part for sale.

    1. Thanks Sabrina!! I got them at either Michael's or Hobby Lobby (threw the original packaging away) but recently I have found that
      supplies are so much cheaper on Etsy.

  10. Wonderful idea. I cannot wear actual "piercing" earrings so I need to try to convert them like this.
