So aye, beer and earrings. There's a connection, actually I think it was whiskey that night, I also tried to steal a christmas tree for some reason... But aye, I woke up with the piercing the beering's in about a year ago...
So this makes perfect sense.
I will get a woman to wear these! Without getting slapped or some speech about "trashy this" and "hillbilly that"
*Again with the re-evaluate your life speech... This is the Beer Bangle all over again...
There's more of this malarkey over on my site - killerjackalope.com
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Beer caps
- Spare earring (Whoever left this here, my bad...)
If your project hasn't got a knife then it needs a hammer. If it has neither you must be knitting.
Step 2: Cut the Cap
Cut a slit in the rim of the cap where you want the top of the earring to be.
I just cut it with a knife, tin snips would probably be safer - if you're in to that sort of thing.
Step 3: Mutilate Earring
So this dangly earring was lying about.
I undid the hoops that stop it all coming to bits by slipping the tip of a knife in to the hoop and turning it.
I took of them spangly lookin' beads and bent the hanging bit in to a shape it'd sit in behind the cap in.
Step 4: Put It in the Slit
Slide the bottom hangy bit in to the slit.
Push it down and get it in the right position.
Step 5: Close the Slit
With pliers, squash the ridges either side of the slit - this'll close it around the wire tightly, making the earring a thing.
I suppose you could glue it if your slit was too wide but this is really solid.
Step 6: Go Drinkin'
Go show off your new ear ornament, go show'em how you drink round here.
