Introduction: Lego Earrings
Recycle the box of Legos from your childhood with these fun Lego Earrings. This project is inspired by Jessyratfink'sDIY Lego Jewelry Instructable. In her version of the earrings she used epoxy to glue the legos to earring posts. In this instructable I use jump rings to attach the Legos to earring hooks.
We brought this project to BurdaStyle's book launch party at TechShop SF and it was a blast!!
Step 1: Supplies
2x2 Legos - I bought this 402 piece pink lego set to get some fun girly colors. The 2x2 size legos are the best for making these earrings.
Drill and 1/6" drill bit - I used a drill press but you can use a hand drill.
Step 2: Drill Holes
Drill two holes in the corner of the legos using a 1/6" drill bit. See image below to see where to drill the holes.
I used our drill press to drill all the holes for the BurdaStyle event. I liked using the drill press over the hand drill because it guaranteed a more accurate hole. If drilling with a hand drill remember that the legos are really easy to drill through so you only need to apply a little pressure when drilling.
Step 3: Attach Jump Ring
Attach the jump ring to the lego using your pliers. Jessy made a great Instructable on how to open/close jump rings! Use this technique when attaching the rings.
Step 4: Attach to Earring Hooks
Easily attach the jump rings to the earring hooks. Close the jump rings. Make sure they are fully closed so the legos don't fall off. Now you're ready to wear them!!
