-Two Hooks


-Dremil (with cutting wheel and sanding drum)

-Drill with a small drill bit

Step 1: Add the Glitter

Pour a little glitter into the spoon. Then add some super glue. Keep doing this until you reach the top of the spoon. Do it in small layers, and let the glue dry. I did this quickly and didn't let it dry, so it took a lot longer for it to dry.

Step 2: Cutting and Sanding

Cut off the handle with cutting wheel. Then sand down to a teardrop shape (or any shape you want). It might help to sand down some of the glitter. If you do sand down glitter it will lose some of the shiny effect, so carefully put more super glue and glitter over it to restore it.

Drill a small hole at the top big enough to put a hook on it. Then add the hook.

Brush off all the extra glitter to prevent it from getting everywhere and making a mess.

Step 3: You're Finished

After the hooks are on and it's all dry, go ahead and wear them around (I can't wear them because I don't have pierced ears and am a boy).
