I love quotes. If you follow me on instagram – which you should Sorry becoming a blogger has made me quite shameless about self-promotion (instagram.com/zenofhapinesswherever)- you may have noticed that every other picture is accompanied by my take on a famous quote. So what could be more appropriate than these Tom Binns Quotation Mark Stud Earrings DIY? And made out of recycled packaging foam no less! View the real thing on Lyst

What you need:

  1. White rubber foam – I got these from the packaging of a memory stick I bought.
  2. Gold sharpie (my new favourite toy)
  3. Earring stud backs
  4. Glue (trying a new one today)
  5. Oh and scissors of course!

Step 1

Cut out 2 quotation marks from the rubber foam- if you’re not sure of your cutting skills, draw the quotation marks with a pen first. The sharpie will cover the pen marks so no worries there.

Step 2

Colour the quotation marks all over with the gold sharpie and leave to dry for 3 minutes

Step 3

Apply some glue at the back, press the stud firmly down and dry for a day.

Step 4

Go out and have some fun with your new earrings!
