Do you love Lego? Do you want to treat yourself with some Lego accessories? Do you know a girl that might, but not especially, also like Lego? Do you think you know someone who might be interested in some nice earrings ignoring the question of liking Lego or not?
If so, or for any other reason, then this is what you need!
These Lego earrings can be pimped with Lego diamonds or worn without, or pimped with any other Lego part you might want to pimp them with!
Step 1: Find some resources and stuff
Of course we'll need some tools to start and finish this little project...
I just kind of used what I had lying around, so I'm sure you can do it with a lot of other and better tools than I had.
What I used:
- drill bits
- sanding paper
- Lego flowers
- cheap earrings
- some random tiny Lego parts
You obviously will also need some Lego parts. I know it's hard to get yourself so far as to cut and glue Lego, but in the end it was worth it. (and I got some parts in the closest but still way too far Lego shop, so I didn't have to sacrifice any Lego sets. yay!)
Step 2: Picking the flower
Lets get started...
Take one of the Lego flower pieces and cut off the stem. I did this flush with the bottom of the leaves.
This leaves you with 2 pieces which we'll both use.
This is soft plastic and you will cut through it a lot easier than you might think.
That also means you might cut through your fingers just as easy, especially when you're working with a sharp knife!
Be careful in other words! I know the method I used is against all the safety regulations imaginable but I'm sure you can come up with safer ways. I suggest for example to secure the flower (with some padding) in a table clamp and cutting away from yourself.
