Step 1: Supplies

  • 1 inch Wooden Tags
  • Nail Polish
  • Modge Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Jump Rings (not pictured)
  • Ear Hooks (not pictured)
  • Toothpick (not pictured)

Step 2: Paint Tags

Paint your tags with your nail polish colors. I used a metallic purple and then a clear glitter overcoat. *Note: When painting on the wooden tag the color darkened. So you may need a few base coats. Or try a base color like white, or even a clear coat then top it with the color of choice. Play around with it, have fun!

Step 3: Let Your Tag Dry

Notice on the photo that I missed a few spots of glitter nail polish. Since these are small and worn as earrings you don't see the boo-boos. Plus when covered with the Mod Podge it blends in well. So the perfectionist in me had to point it out, but I refrained from fixing it. Huge accomplishment. It won't happen again. LOL

Step 4: Add Modge Podge Dimensional Magic

Add your Modge Podge Dimensional Magic and bring it to the edges with a toothpick.

Step 5: Let Dry

Step 6: Repeat on Other Side

Repeat the previous steps on the other side of your tag.

Step 7: Attach Hardware

Attach your jump rings and ear hook. Voila! Cute earrings.

(Sorry guys didn't think to show how to add the hardware...if you need help I'll post it.)
