C’mon Barbie Let’s Go Party
I love shoes. It would be like a dream come true to be able to wear more than one pair at a time, I never thought that day would come though.
When I saw these Mary Jane inspired necklaces I knew I had a DIY coming on and a dream come true in the making. I thought I could use some old barbie shoes to make earrings.
Supplies—> A pair of old barbie shoes (or you could pick some up at the dollar store), gold paint, jump rings, metal chain and earrings. Also, you’ll need pliers, a knife or scissors, and a paint brush.
Step 1—> Cut a small hole in the back of the shoes, just enough for a jump ring to slide through. You’ll need to measure out the chains too, make sure they are an appropriate length for your neck.
Step 2—> Paint the shoes gold. Now, I first attempted to spray paint them but it didn’t work cause the plastic was too slick. I ended up using some acrylic paint, but I think the metallic sharpie would have worked well. You’ll need to give them a couple of coats. Be patient and don’t glob it on. You might want to paint the chains and earrings so all the gold matches.
Step 3—>Once the paint is fully dried, slide the jump ring through the back of the shoe.
Step 4—> Attach the chain to the jump ring on the back of the shoe, then the earrings to the chain. Voila, you are all finished!
These are super cute and cost virtually nothing. Upcycling at its best I think. I hope you guys have fun making some of your own!
