  • How to make a pair of shrink plastic earrings. X Japan Ear Rings - Step 1
    Step 1

    Draw your design onto shrink plastic. I based mine around the size of a hole from a hole punch. I've found that the hole punched hole shrinks to the perfect size for jewelery findings. For the X there isnt a hole, The ear ring hook is just hooked through the X.

  • Step 2

    Cut out your designs (and punch the holes if you havent done already XD). I used a pair of very small nail scissors.

  • Step 3

    Shrink your plastic in the oven at 120 degC. It will curl A LOT but dont worry it'll settle. Once it has settled, take out of the oven (be careful, i burned my arm VERY badly) and leave to cool.

  • Step 4

    Hook on the ear rings and wear!! I would like to see your versions ^^

Just the scissors XD my hand hurt really badly after. I have a small craft knife but it isnt strong enough to cut the plastic, even unshrinken!
