Picture of ♥BEER CAPS EARRINGS♥

I made these earrings with Lagunitas beer caps.

They are really easy to make.

Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

Picture of WHAT YOU NEED

YOU NEED:

  • 2 earrings hoops;
  • 2 jump rings;
  • 2 beads;
  • 2 pieces of copper wire (I take it from a electric cable);
  • 2 beer caps (I found the Lagunitas IPA beer caps to work the better and the beer been really good! I tried other kind but the rubber behind didn't come off so easy or the color wasn't so nice);
  • little hammer;
  • round pliers;
  • sanding paper (not in photo);
  • nail or sharp file (not in photo);
  • flat pliers.

Love this. A easier way to get the rubber out for me is to take a jar candle/ coffee mug warmer. Set the caps on flat side down. Give them about 10 seconds to warm up an the rubber usually pulls out easily.

Yet another good excuse to boose! Nice project, and you've got the sweetest hammer I've ever seen ;)

: ) ….beer!!!

Yes that hammer look pretty funny, it is actually to put rivets but it is so small that is perfect for those kind of things.

Thanks for the comment!
