Bottlecap Earrings

Jamie Pope back with you again today with a fun set of earrings! By now, I think most of you know I like projects that are quick and simple (it's the whole instant gratification thing for me :) ). With the exception of drying time, this set of earrings can be completed in about 40 minutes.

Start by selecting a patterned paper with a small print and cut out two circles to fit inside the Basically Bare bottlecaps. Glue down the paper and then cover with a thin layer of Ranger's Glossy Accents. Once the Glossy Accents is dry, it's time to add the beads and earring hooks.

Using a piercing tool, add two holes to each bottlecap - one at the top and one at the bottom. Add the earring hooks through the top holes. On the bottom holes, add a jump ring and on the jump ring add three beads which have been attached to head pins.

Here's hoping everyone has a spooktacular Halloween!
