Are you a creative person? Do you like to make your own jewelry? Designing and creating your earrings is a fun way to share your personality while doing something you love. Whether you make them for yourself or give them away as gifts, here are some unusual things you can make beautiful earrings out of.
Next time you get a glass bottle of soda, save the bottlecap. You can punch a hole into part of it and quickly make earrings out of them. You can save the caps until you get two of the same kind to make a pair of earrings or mix and match them. You can even go a step further and add embellishments to the bottlecap earrings, such as bows or extra beads, which help enhance their look.
Do you have a bottle of seashells sitting on your shelf, calling out to you? Well, now you have a way to use them. Seashells can be very delicate, so they could benefit from a light coating of epoxy or resin. The coating will not only protect them, but it will also make the shells look wet, which will give them more of a visual appeal.
If you don’t live near a beach or river, you can easily find Florida shells for sale online or at craft stores in your area.
If you have old games with wooden tiles lying around that you never use, consider turning them into earrings. You can glue an image onto the back of the tile and then cover that with a coat of resin. You could choose to use brightly colored paper or shrink a picture of something funny or meaningful and attach that to the tile.
Whether you choose to create them yourself or buy small figurines from the store vending machine, you can easily turn them into earrings. You want to make sure that you only use tiny figurines because the larger they are, the more they’ll pull on your earlobes and cause you pain.
