Your supplies, add two beads of any color.
Pick out two bottle caps. They don't have to be identical. I like Smirnoff 😀.
Prep your bottle caps by giving them a quick clean with warm soapy water. This will get rid of any alcohol smell or spots that might be left on the caps.
Carefully take your drill and make a small hole in the cap. You can also use a hammer and thumb tack but it takes a little bit longer to make the hole.
Put you bead on the end of the head pin. This will keep the pin from going through the hole of the bottle cap.
Put the top of the pin through the in the cap. Cut off the excess of the pin and make a loop.
Here is your loop.
With both caps done its time to add the earring hooks.
And there you go. You have a wonderful pair of bottle cap earrings from for favorite beverage.
Here are a few more pairs that I did during this guide. I find it easier to make a bunch of pairs at the same time. It saves on the time of making the earrings if they are drilled at the same time.
If you aren't old enough to drink you can always get caps from bottles of soda like these ones.
I hope you have enjoyed this guide :D. Have fun making some bottle cap earrings!!
