Helpful Hints: Clip Earrings to Pierced - An Easy Fix

I loved this necklace set on sale at TJMaxx even though the earrings were not for pierced ears.  I just loved the look of it.
I then purchased this card of flat post earrings at Walmart.  
And simply fed one pair through a space in the backing of the clip.  Close the clip and use the pierced earring for inserting into your ear. 
Problem solved !

Awesome! I have a pair of gorgeous earrings from my g'ma who has never pierced her ears. I rarely wear them but now I am going to try this and am super excited!

I remember begging my mom for a pair of clip-ons when I was a kid. She got them for me, and I never could wear them! lol. This is a great idea!

Thanks for linking up for Friday Favorites!

VERY clever. Now I can start actually using some of those vintage earrings that I find at the yard sales. Some of them are really beautiful, but talk about torture! This will certainly solve that problem.

The necklace and earrings are terrific. I would have had to convert the earrings, as well. Clips are just way too uncomfortable.

Thanks for linking in to Tips and Tricks Tuesday.

Hope to see you at Time Travel Thursday tonight, as well.

You can get the details here:

This is a great idea. I saw those peace earrings a few weeks back and left without them. I hope they are still there because I have some of my grandmother's earrings I would like to wear.

Miz Helen said...

What a great idea. I had no idea that could be done. I have earrings from my Mother that I would love to wear, so now maybe I will be able to do just that.
Thank you very much for sharing the idea.
