As part of my Project from a Tesco Milk Bottle challenge and because Im preparing for a workshop for an All Girls School, (PLUS I have 2 young daughters); here is one of 6 super-quick earrings made from milk bottles...

Materials & Equipment List

Materials- Tesco Milk Bottle- Earring FindingsEquipment- Sharp scissors- Leather Scratch Awl (heavy-duty pin/needle)- Small Pliers

Making Instructions (Login to see the full instructions)

You will need some of these.
Cut the milk bottle in half - it's easier to work with/dissect.
Half a milk bottle.
Using the scissors, I cut the milk bottle into three main parts to start with, since this gives me 3 different types of material to work with.
And then again.
Isolate one of the wall sections, with the curve.
Cut along the section - maximising the curved area, then cut in half.
Do the same for a smaller piece of 'textured' milk bottle (see handle section in step 4).
Cut into two equal parts.
Cut 2 textured squares for the bottom layer (see next step).
Place all the layers on top of each other.
Punch the hole through them.
Do this for both.
Thread through the finding.
