Tuesdays Tip - Old Earrings?

I absolutely love free decorating ideas! I get giddy when I see an idea and immediately go home and do it myself.

This weekend we ate dinner with some friends at their incredibly decorated and cozy home.

She accessorized a candle with old earrings and charms. What a great idea!

So I came home and found these old earrings I NEVER wear. Put them on a candle and viola it gave it a little "pow". Here is the candle before just a plain ole Dollar Tree Candle

Take a look at the pair! This is on the wall in my kitchen. I found this floral arrangement in Canton. I got it for my birthday 3 years ago, doesn't it just scream I live in Texas? Thanks mom!
I am on the hunt for big gaudy earrings at garage sales now!
Watch out all my candles will be accessorized!

AWESOME! I love it! You're so funny! I'm assuming there a lot of fake flowers in Texas? :)

Wow! That's great! Sure beats those REALLY EXPENSIVE candle spikes we saw the night of our blogging party, huh? I, too, will be on the hunt for gaudy earrings. What a fun gift to give, too!!

That's a great idea!

What a cute idea. I have a bunch of hand-me-down earrings from relatives that are pretty but not "me" to wear. This is a great way to showcase them.

Ooooooo Canton!! I was just there for the First. Time. Ever. recently and now MUST go back ASAP and get a floral arrangement that screams "I live in Texas!!!!"

I can't believe the difference that earring makes! And now? I've got some nekkid candles laying around that need accessorizing. Thanks for the great tip!

What a great idea! How come I never thought of that? It makes that dollar store candle look like you got it a boutique.

Gorgeous! Now I wish I would have kept all those 80's earrings. :)
I'll be looking for some pretty vintage ones like yours instead!
