Who needs magical ruby slippers when you have these Oz Inspired Cardboard DIY Earrings? These golden drop earrings are so much more fun to make than following a yellow brick road down a very long journey. This quick and easy piece of upcycled jewelry looks like it cost you a fortune, when in reality you made them with some leftover cardboard. Inspired by The Great and Powerful Oz, these handmade earrings have more magic in them than the emerald city. Even if you didn't see the movie, these DIY earrings are still super gorgeous for anyone to wear!

I love the idea of the Oz Inspired Cardboard DIY Earrings. Everyone who loves making jewelry should make these. The picture does not do justice to the ombre paint. Trust me, they really are pretty.

Fun project to do with youngsters, encourages recycling, reading, and creativity -- brilliant idea
