New Video Tutorial – Easy UpCycled Painted Denim Earrings

New Video Tutorial – Reclaimed Denim Earrings – a fun and easy DIY project

DIY Upcycled Painted Denim Earrings MyPaintedPath.com

The latest project up on my YouTube channel will have you crafting and upcycling some amazing, colorful and SUPER EASY DIY earrings.  I think my favorite by far is the watercolory (yup, that is a word, I just made it up)  fringe earrings, but I am thrilled with how all of them turned out.  I think are not only a great craft project for kids, teens and the young at heart, but would also be a great item to craft up to sell at markets and fairs.  My niece has already gotten her hands on the earrings I made for this video and claimed them for herself!
