Old to New Cufflinks

A while ago i was sitting in church and i saw a man wearing some cufflinks. They were these huge fake diamonds and even though I'm about 100% sure his wife bought them for him i could be wrong maybe he likes them. All i know is my husband wouldn't be caught dead in them so i thought why not make my mtn man some manly cufflinks.
Kori found an ugly pair and bought them for me and I've waited till closer to Fathers Day to do something with them.
I used a wire cutter and cut the top off.
I took 2 parts off of this bracelet.

I had to hold it up as it dried. After they dried i added a bit more to make it even more secure.
The one is not completely centered i hope i don't have to take it apart. We will see how it works.
Now what to put in here! Since my husband moves dirt for a living i thought about filling it with dirt and putting a clear coat on the outside. What do you guys think? What fun things are you guys doing for the men in your lives?



  1. You are a very clever girl! I love those cufflinks! My Sweets has a tie tack from the first 4 kids! I should update that with number 5 who turns 18 this summer! LOL! Have a great day! Anne

  2. Hmm... perhaps a picture of a dirt mover... aka bulldozer? Dump truck? I like the dirt idea too.

  3. Great idea! My hubby is an administrator.. what can I do for him?? ha!

  4. What a great idea! The Texan loves cuff links - though he wears them about twice a year. Hmm, maybe I'll try to make these too.

    Thanks for linking up with Super Stalker Sunday hop. There are so many wonderful blogs participating, I hope you've found a few that you enjoy. Be sure to join us again next week!

  5. What a cute idea! How about some dirt with meaning, like from your own yard, a favorite picnic spot, sand from the beach.

  6. Tara, I love your idea for the custom cufflinks! E-6000 rocks! The dirt is a really clever concept too. I agree with Marie Anne above that having a bit o' sediment from a special place would make the encapsulation even more meaningful!
