Show your love for your Ipod with these nifty earbud earrings!
I recommend using old earbuds for this project. If you end up making these, please take a picture and show me!

  • Step 1

    Cut earbuds from wires, right at the base of the earbud (where the wire goes into the earbud).

  • Step 2

    Open crimps wide using pliers.

  • Step 3

    Use pliers to shape crimps around earbuds.

  • Step 4

    Using super glue (or whatever type you have handy - the stronger the better) glue crimps to earbuds.

  • Step 5

    Insert earring hooks through holes in crimps, and viola! Two new earbud earrings. :D

when i was making this i cut off the earbuds and discovered that the wires they use are sooo colorful. so i slid all of the wires out of the casings and am making a cool bracelet out of them. its like, extreme recycling.
