you can say that i like coke. you can say i collect coca-cola stuff. you can say i’m slightly obsessed.
with all that said, you shouldn’t be surprised that i found a way to make earrings out of a coke can.
originally i intended to get the logo onto 2 circle earrings but i found these little cokes and thought that maybe I could do something with the coke bottle shape. here’s how i got along:
Cut the shape out of the can, make it pretty wide so you have room for mistakes.
Then, using industrial scissors, cut out the shape along the lines.
using a piece of thick cardstock, trace the shape.
fold the cardstock in half and cut out two shapes at the same time.
mod-podge the two pieces together. press all the access glue out the edges and wipe off. i didn’t do this, but am thinking i should. file the edges a bit to smooth them out. then you can probably mod-podge the entire front and back surfaces.
using a push pin, make a hole in the top of the bottle.
at the time i made these, i didn’t have any earring pieces to make them look like real earrings so i ended up using an extra pair of $5 studs i already had.
