New use for bottle caps!
A friend of mine had a very similar pair of bottle cap earrings but lost one. In normal crafty fashion I thought "Hey, I can make that!" And so I did! I added a little more flair to mine, and turns out people love em! They are so simple to make, so I thought I would share. Sorry that I didn't have any images as I went, but they are pretty easy. If you have any questions, just ask!
Alright, getting very annoyed it will not let me add anymore pictures, and not sure why. I will attempt to edit later and add more photos!

  • Step 1

    Use a nail or a craft knife to add a small whole to the top of the bottle cap. I found a craft knife hit a few times with a hammer created a cleaner hole than the nail.

  • Step 2

    Thread wire through the whole and twist with needle nose pliers.

  • Step 3

    String beads on to the wire. This is your choice, you do not have to add beads.

    Step 4

    Bend the wire and clip to so the end will fit under the crimp bead. I use open crimp beads. They look like pack mans.

  • Step 5

    Attach the earring hooks and pinch the wire to secure, then clip on the open crimp bead to secure. And you are done!
