DIY Leopard Print Earrings

(I did the star earrings first then decided to photograph the heart how-to. Sorry for any confusion :))

Everywhere I look there is Leopard print. On leggings, babies, stairs, everywhere. I wasn’t a big fan but when you see it everywhere sometimes it starts to look cute. (Someone obviously drank the kool-aid!)
So it was about 1 am and while I was reading a thought jumps in my head, (that’s right there not in there, they just jump right in) I remembered I had some jewelry that I bought during Halloween and I figured I could make a pair to have the leopard print that’s going around.

Here’s what you need:
Earring studs
Black polish
Gold polish
Brown-ish polish (really any colors u want to use to make leopard

Here’s what you do:
First you grab the earring, paint it gold, dot some of that brown-ish polish. Between adding your different colors of polish you should wait a couple of seconds before applying the next step in polish so that it has a little time to dry. Since you are not using a lot of polish it doesn’t need much time. So, after your “spots” are dry you get your black polish and draw little lines or curves or squiggles whatever your leopard print loving heart desires. My black polish has a very thin brush so I was able to use that but if u do not have one, you can just put a dot of polish on something and use a toothpick to draw the lines, squiggles, curves, whatever.
I don’t know about y’all but I love making things out of the blue!
