DIY: A Crafternoon With Mark Montano + Bling Statement Earrings

Last week I invited myself over to Mark Montano (crafter extraordinaire and author of the Big Ass Book Of Crafts and The Big Ass Book Of Bling)’s craft house for an afternoon of crafting. I have a craft closet, Mark has a craft house!!! #MAJOR

We spent the afternoon turning a pair of basic pumps into the most blinged out pair of heels this side of the Miu Miu store. A true show stopper! Below is a video of all our DIY adventure…

This project inspired me! I took the same idea and DIYed a pair of statement earrings.

Materials: A Piece Of Leather, Flat Back Stones, E6000

Cut out a fun shape from your piece of leather

Lay the stones into your desired pattern and use the E6000 to glue them into place.

I used a needle to punch a hole at the top and added an earring finding. So chic!
