4 Things To Make out of Broken Jewelry

DIY craft: make jewelry

Back in October, I had the opportunity of coming up with several things to make out of broken jewelry for the Charming Charlie’s fashion blog.  They wanted each piece to have a different style and vibe.  Therefore, I made a chic monogrammed wood letter, vintage embellished mirror, and a rocker frame. They are all incredibly easy to make, as only beginner glue guns skills are required.  {{wink}}

Each DIY project has it’s own video, as well as pictured instructions so you can make them as well.  I also love to personalize my purses, and therefore I created a quick tutorial on how to embellish an old purse with jewelry.  They were each a labor of love and I hope you learn some new or are inspired to making something fun for yourself this week.
