LoveMaegan's Great Upcycled Jewelry Ideas for Embellished Collar Tips

By on Thursday, March 29, 2012 4 Comments

LoveMaegan was inspired by many of the trendy embellished collar tip designs out there and eventually come up with her own spin and tutorial.  She embroidered glass pearls, vintage rhinestone earrings, buttons and beads from her broken necklace for her drop dead gorgeous collar tips.

The blouse will have to be carefully hand washed or even dry cleaned.  I think embellishing a coat or jacket collars are also a good idea  - less frequent laundering for those garments!

But if you don't want to embroider, consider her other post on 10 Easy Ways to Upcycle Rhinestone Earrings.  Every single one is a fabulous idea so I highly recommend you visit her blog for this post.  One of them involves making over the rhinestone earrings into brooches which can be pinned to embellish collars of any outfit! So no worries regarding the laundering.

  1. Great collar tips!! Love all those pearls. Could the tips be embroidered on felt and then put a pin back on so they could be easily removed for laundering?
