red and green decorated plastic bottle earringsYou don't necessarily have to buy expensive materials to make classy looking jewellery. Here is just one idea for re-using plastic packaging to make something pretty to wear. I have used a drink bottle, but any other suitable clear plastic can be used to make these sparkly earrings.

Supplies:

  • 1 clear drink bottle or other similar plastic packaging

  13. Leave this to dry. This could take a while. You can speed up the drying by leaving them on top of a warm radiator.
