Okay, you’ve already decorated enough wooden letters with your leftover diamonds to write everyone in your family’s name twice. And you’ve still got spare diamonds. Seriously, do they seem to multiply for anyone else? 

If you’re looking for more creative projects for your leftover diamonds, look no further! Thanks to the crafters in the official Paint With Diamonds Facebook Support Group, we’ve got nine new ideas to help you put your diamonds into good use around the house. 


1. Gemify Your Glasses Cases 

 Bedazzled Glasses Cases

Who said good eyesight has to be boring? Amber Kingsley bedazzled her glasses cases with her leftover diamonds. It’s easy to do but has a high reward! 


2. Recreate Relaxation

Vicki Greig designed this stunning sunset with her leftover gems. This picture is perfect for hanging in a beach house or a house you wish was a beach house :). I can smell the ocean now! 


3. Enchant Your Garden

Sure, flowers in a garden are beautiful. But, flowers in a garden with diamond creations? Double the beauty! Sarah Goulden created this gorgeous butterfly ornament to place in her flowerpots. 


4. Create in Coloring Books

 Coloring Book Design Covered in Gems

Bored of colored pencils and paints? Why not color with diamonds! Kolz Wolkiewicz used this coloring book design to create this gorgeous piece of artwork. 


5. Make Magic On Your Money Tin

  Money Tin with Gem Design

Gemma Louise Hall added this week’s leftover diamonds to her money tin using a b7000 glue stick on the drills. This design will work fabulously on any cup you’re looking to dazzle. Nice work! 


6. Outdo Yourself With Ornaments

  Decorated mirror ornaments

If painting with diamonds has taught me anything, there’s no such thing as too much bling! Nora Androschuck made her ornaments shine with her leftover drills. 


7. Perfect Some Pictures

8. Light Up Your Light Switch

You’re coming home after a long day out of the house. You enter your dark home. You reach for the lights and- it’s a light switch covered with leftover diamonds. Day=made! We love this light switch cover created by Jyll Manhoff Bender. 


9. Elevate Easter

Jennifer Kessel Brindley got the bright idea to bedazzle these Easter eggs, and we love it! Plastic colorful eggs are one thing, but bedazzled eggs are more fun for everyone!

    Would absolutely love some ideas or name of resourses for in-expensive frames. Frames are so expensive in places like Michaels, Hobby Lobby and etc
    .You should offer us a frame choice for our treasures.

    Thanks for sharing how others have used leftover beads. However, it would be nice if you included instructions on the steps they took to create their projects.
