I found the cutest Hello Kitty erasers at my local craft store for only $1 per package and had to buy them. But the problem is, what does an grown up do with cutesy erasers?
Turn them into jewelry, of course!
You will need (for basic charm):
-needle nose pliers
-6 mm jump ring
-2" long head pin
-jewelry clip (or earring hook)
Step 1: Making a Basic Eraser Charm
First I'll show you how to make the most basic charm. While I used a clip to finish it off, you could also turn these into cute earrings or necklace charms.
1. gripping the needle with the pliers, careful push it through the center of the eraser and then pull it out. This will create a hole for our headpin to go through. Be careful though as might end up pushing the needle through the front or back of the eraser and we don't want that!
2. use the pliers to push the headpin through the hole created by the needle, with the head at what will be the bottom of our charm. Push/pull it all the way until the headpin is flat against the bottom of the eraser.
3. Trim the excess headpin down to about 1/4 inch and using your pliers, bend it into a loop.
4. Open the jump ring and use it to attach the clip (or earring hook) to the loop on the eraser. If you want to use this as a necklace, simply attach the jump ring by itself.
5. Admire your work!
