Anyway – to avoid any and all gift-related arguments, what I get for my variety fix are bracelets. I just love them! So I decided it could certainly be converted to a bracelet, and the result is definitely Little-Black-Dress-worthy (not that I get to wear mine all that often, but I could see this as an any-night-out piece too).
This is another one of those projects that’s so easy, I feel like I can hardly call it a “tutorial”. But I’ll show you how I did it anyway. :)
I started off with these two pieces, both 30% off this week at Michael’s. (Woohoo!)
You have to remove all the hardware from the back of the brooch. So raid your real toolbox (or your husband’s, if that’s the way it is in your household) for a pair of wire cutters and cut off the bails and the pin. Make sure they don’t go flying, they have a tendency to.
Put some E6000 (or whatever heavy-duty permanent adhesive you like to use) on the blank of the cuff.
And position your flower however you like. You may need to add a little more adhesive – make sure that there’s a good connection between the flower and the blank.
Now just set it aside and let it cure for several hours. I turned mine upside-down for this, so that it wouldn’t slide around, and would dry straight.
And that’s it! Once it cured, I admired it… (and I’m sorry, you cannot photograph your own wrist without it being all awkward, LOL!)
…and told my husband we need a decent date night, stat. So, anyone want to babysit?? ;)
I link up to these great parties!
