Step 1: Materials You Need
What you need to make these earrings:
2 heart shaped punches, one a bit larger than the other.
An aluminum coffee pod
A piece of inner tube from a bike
2 metal colored earring hooks
Step 2: Cut Out the Pieces From Your Inner Tube
Use the larger heart shaped punch to cut out 2 hearts from the inner bike tube. Because this punch is not symetrical, we cut out a heart on either side
Step 3: Cut Out the Pieces From Your Coffee Pod
Take a cleaned coffee pod and cut off the top and the bottom. The middle part you can use to cut out your hearts. Use the smaller heart shaped punch, as shown in the photos.
Step 4: Now Construct Your Earrings
Put the inner tube heart and the coffee pod heart together and pierce the two, on the side where you want to add your jumpring. Now add the jumpring and earring hooks and your earrings are done!
We hope you can create a beautiful present for the one you love with this Instructable!
