DIY Simple Earring Set Gift Idea

Today I’m going to show you how to take some inexpensive earrings and DIY them to make your gift look more expensive. While shopping at Free People, I noticed an earring set for $18.00 that was packaged in leather and it was so cute. I thoiught it would make a great birthday gift or holiday gift and would be so simple to re-create at home. So, I took a snapshot of the earring set and found all of the supplies on Amazon Prime to create several of these Simple DIY Earring Sets for about half of the price or more. To me, packaging is everything and honestly, the earrings at Free People were adorable, but it was how they were displayed that made them look even better. I am pretty sure every female in my family will be getting one of these DIY earrings sets in their Christmas gift basket this year.
