Everyone who wears jewelry knows the heartbreaking moment when you realize that your jewelry is broken.

If your jewelry is beyond repair, you might just toss it in the trash — that’s what I normally do.

Luckily, there are a whole bunch of other DIY projects you can do with your old, worn out jewelry!

1. Earring Hairpin

If you lose an earring, don’t just throw the other one away. Instead, turn it into a hairpin! Pick a bobby pin the same color as your earring, then bend back the earring posts. Use a tough adhesive to attach the bobby pin to the back of the earring.

2. Framed Jewelry Flowers

Take the glass out of a cute picture frame, then replace it with a piece of colored paper. Place the back of the frame back in, then gather up some old jewelry. Using a strong glue, place the jewelry onto the colored paper in a floral pattern.

3. Jeweled Corkboard

Instead of hanging up a basic corkboard in your house, upgrade it with some jewelry! Use glue to attach a necklace to hang the corkboard. Next, glue some cute ribbon to the outside of the board, then use earrings to attach papers and photos to the corkboard!

4. Pearly Vase

Instead of placing flowers into a plain glass vase, upgrade it with some paint and some gorgeous old pearls. Wrap a strand of pearls around the thinnest part of the vase, then put your favorite flowers into it!
