D.I.Y. Renew Tarnished Hoop Earrings Project

Old Dull Used Earrings
Costume jewelry is more common to wear these days, especially for people that are on a budget. Some costume jewelry looks really cute, and are a fun accessory to wear. Sometimes women have hoop earrings that are bought, and they last about one or two weeks before the hoop earrings begin to fade. And no one wants to wear dull looking hoop earrings. Applying clear fingernail polish on your new hoop earrings will save them from tarnishing.
When you have hoop earrings that are starting to look dull, don't throw them away. Keep your old dull hoop earrings, and then paint them with fingernail polish. You can choose any color fingernail polish for renewing the look of your old dull hoop earrings. Plus choosing the color of fingernail polish that you want for your earrings can match your shoes, belt, purse, or clothes if want it to.
Many women like wearing hoop earrings, no matter what nationality they are. It's fun to polish thin hoop earrings and the thick hoop earring.
Once you paint one side of your dull hoop earrings, sat them on paper to dry for about 5-6 hours. Then flip the hoop earrings over to the other side, and begin to paint them, and then let them dry for about 5 hours before wearing them. ( Remember to make sure the earrings are not totally wet when placing them on paper to dry).
Another idea to recycle old used hoop earrings is to crochet around the hoop, with thin crochet thread called embroidery thread. I have a pair of hoop earrings that I was going to throw in the trash, until I got the idea to wrap them with embroidery thread. Tarnished and dull arm bracelets can also be painted or crocheted.
