I’m a big time hoarder. I suspect many people who enjoy crafts and DIY are- after all you never know when something is going to come in handy! Which is why I bought 20 pairs of almost identical silver hoop earrings at a go!

 

After keeping them for a few years, I decided it’d be more practical to have earrings that I could actually tell apart so here are 17 ways I’ve updated my silver hoops. And they’re super easy too! Only 4 projects require pliers- the rest are perfect as a first time fashion DIY, requiring no tools (apart from scissors and glue for some)! So grab your friends for a crafter noon and give them a try!

 

  1. Use silver wire and wrap seed beads all around the hoops
