It should be about 3 1/2 in when straightened out, cut it at about 1 1/2 and curve the longer piece.

Start from the tip and wrap twice

The plastic will most likely strip away, but it'll be okay as long as it's not too much.

Step 4: Wrap the Bud Around the Stem

Wrap it tight around the Stem at least twice, and then start molding the shape.
Use fingers when necessary and don't get too carried away!

Use superglue to secure the connection.

Step 5: Make the Leaf

Use the remaining Green piece and curve it to make a loop around the stem, then join it together at the ends to complete the Leaf.

Step 6: Shape It!

Shape the earring to your preference.
I like it as more of a closed hoop, but females can wear them longer if they choose.

Adjust sizes and experiment as you see fit.
