Turn old earrings into tree trimmings
Here's a fun way to put all your old earrings to good use. With a length of wire you can craft your own tree ornaments.
Craft or jewellery wire
Beads and old earrings
1. Cut 2 pieces of wire 150mm in length.
2. Turn loops at one end of each wire by coiling the wire around itself. Hold tightly as you turn.
3. Finish off with a small loop at the end.
4. Place the middle of the loop over the round-nose pliers and carefully pull down the coil with you fingers to separate the loops evenly. Make sure the loop at the top is tight enough to hold you earrings in place when fitted.
