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...

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, the 2 curved sections from the side.
Cut them into 5 strips. Make them different widths, as the layering of the milk bottle creates an intersting visual effect.
Layer them on top of each other, as you wish.
Put a hole through the layers.
Do this for both.
Thread through the findings. Milk Bottle earrings... in minutes!
