Today's Guest: Infarrantly Creative

Hello, I am Beckie, from Infarrantly Creative. Today I am going to show you how to make some inexpensive Halloween jewelry with some unexpected materials.


White, Orange and Yellow Paint Samples
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
Wax paper to cover surface
Jump rings
Earrings wires
Jeweler’s pliers or needle nose pliers

1.  Gather orange, yellow and white paint samples from your nearest hardware store.

2.  Cut strips of each color making the orange strip wider than the yellow and the white.

3.  Take the strips of paper and glue them down to another paint chip making sure that you glue them down on the wrong side of the paint chip.  Sandwich them between two books and weight them down so you get a nice seal.

4.  When they are all dry cut out a shape of a candy corn.  Don’t worry about perfection.  Imperfection means added whimsy!

5.  Take some Mod Podge Dimensional Magic and starting on the outside edge and working your way to the middle put a nice thick coat on your paint chips.

6.  Let it dry overnight.  Flip it over and add the Dimensional Magic to the other side and wait for that to dry.
7.  After your piece is fully dry it will have a beautifully thick and shiny gloss coat over it.

8.  To make the edges smooth rub the sides onto a fine grit sanding sponge  That will make everything look neat.

9.  Next using the smallest bit you can find drill a hole SLOWLY through the top of your candy corn.


10.  Using jeweler’s pliers or needle nose pliers add a jump ring and earring wires and/or a jump ring and a necklace chain.





Thanks for having me girls! Happy Spooktacular September ya’ll!

Thank you so much Beckie for such a cute and clever project!!
Who would have ever thought to make jewelry out of paint samples??  um... Beckie!!
She does incredible things over on her blog Infarrantly Creative. Like taking furniture that should be heading to the dump and turning it into beautiful pieces of furniture we'd all love to have in our homes!
Don't take my word for it though, head over and see for yourself. She really is that good!
