Step 1: Step 1: Gather Your Supplies
For this project, you will need:
-one roll of duct tape, any color (I recommend a print to add more pop)
-flush-cutter (a jewelry making tool, available at most craft stores)
-round-nose pliers (also a jewelry making tool, available at most craft stores)
-two eye pins (beading accessory, available at most craft stores)
-two fishhook earrings (available at most craft stores)
Step 2: Step 2: Cut Your Duct Tape
Roll your duct tape out about 2 inches or more (it depends on how wide you want the earrings). Keep in mind you will be folding it in half. Then cut the duct tape from the roll.
Step 3: Step 3: Fold Your Duct Tape
Fold your duct tape in half and trim the edges so no sticky part of the duct tape is showing.
Step 4: Step 4: Poke a Hole
Poke a whole using the eye pin in the top center of your duct tape.
Step 5: Step 5: Add the Eye Pin
Using the round-nose pliers, open the eye part of the eye pin and stick it through the hole you pierced in the duct tape. Then use the round-nose pliers to close the eye of the eye pin completely so the duct tape cannot fall out of the eye part.
Step 6: Step 6: Cut the Eye Pin
Using the flush-cutter, citing the eye pin about one half-inch from the eye of the eye pin.
Step 7: Step 7: Add the Fishhook Earring
Using the round-nose pliers, take the top of the eye pin and circle it around the pliers. Before closing the circle completely, take the fishhook earring and put the bottom of the fishhook through the circle you made with the pliers. Then, using the pliers, carefully close the circle completely.
Step 8: Step 8: Do It Again
Repeat steps 2-7 and make another earring you end product for the one earring should look like the one in the photo above.

Your earrings are now finished!
