I made these earring with mostly recycled material. They are really easy to make and you only need basic tools.
Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-a dog food aluminum container;
-a beer cap;
-2 earrings hoops;
-16 jump ring;
-2 small chains (not in the photo).
-nail (not in photo).
Step 2: CUT THE LEAVES
Cut 10 small lives out of the dog food aluminum sheet.
→Just pay attention to don't cut yourself during the whole process.
Step 3: SHAPE THE LEAVES
With the part of the scissors that doesn't cut make a line in the center of the leave, than make many little lines on the side of it.
Bend the leave a little bit in the middle using the pliers.
Step 4: MAKE A HOLE
Make a small hole with the nail on one edge of each leave.
Step 5: PREPARE THE CAP
Flatten the cap with the hammer (do it slowly or it will brake).
Remove plastic sealing from it.
Sand the colored part or paint it.
Step 6: CUT THE CAP IN HALF
Cut the cap in half and sand really well all the edges.
Step 7: MAKE HOLE IN THE CAP
Make 5 hole in the bottom round part of each cap and 2 in the middle of the flat part.
Step 8: PLACE THE LEAVES
Place the leaves on the half cap with the jump rings.
Step 9: PLACE THE CHAIN
Place the chain: put one edge in one hole and the other edge in the other hole of the flat part, using 2 jump rings.
Step 10: PLCE THE HOOK
Place the earring hook in the middle of the chain with another jump ring.
Step 11: DONE!
You are done! I think they are really nice and I like that they are made of recycled materials.
