Bottle-cap earrings: Love Africa

So I saw a friend from Zimbabwe wearing this cool bottle-cap earring, so I decided to make one. You may ask what a bottle-cap is. It is a coke or fanta cover.

Things you need:

Two bottle caps.

Spray paint

Paint markers or permanent markers

Earring hoops.

some extra time 🙂

1) Use a pair of pliers to bend out the outer edge of each counter. You can do this by hand, but that will just take time.

2) Remove that rubber wrap in the counter.

3) Spray the counter with paint. You can also paint the counter with regular paint and a brush.

5) Put a hole in the bottle cap with a small nail and a hammer. Even better, you could use a metal punch. Whatever method you use, be careful.
