Need some earrings to show your Valentine’s Day spirit? Give these recycled Coke can heart earrings a try. They are super cheap to create, and your friends will be amazed that they came from a can. You can used a paper punch or a die cut machine for the heart shape. The embossing can be done with a die cut machine or embossing folder and rolling pin, like I showed you in my recycled can heart bezel pendant tutorial.
Metal hole punch
Red acrylic paint and sponge brush
2 pairs of flat nose jewelry pliers
See recycled can heart bezel pendant for more details on preparing the can.
I showed you in the heart bezel pendant tutorial (linked above) how you can emboss without an embossing machine. Emboss first, then cut shape (aren’t you proud, Amy?)!
To dome the resin, pour in middle and pull out to edges with toothpick or needle tool. Don’t pour too much. You can always add more resin if needed. Having resin run over the edges of your piece is no fun. Seriously.
When resin is dry, paint the other side of the earring and hole punch for jump ring placement.
Use pliers to open jump ring and attach it to another jump ring and an ear wire. Close, then open end ring an attach to heart.
