super easy thumb tack earrings
I saw on Sunday Morning this story about a guy who made portraits out of thumb tacks and this lady that made artwork out of map tacks... I found this soooo cool and thought to make something no one else had made out of tacks. So far, I dont know anyone else that has made these. Please tell me differently if someone has! I dont want to seem like I am stealing their idea :P Anyways.. sorry for the blurry bad pics and almost no pics for the how to. Hope this still helps :P

  • Step 1

    Get your thumb tack and bend over the little metal part with the pliers till it looks like a little loop.

  • Step 2

    Get one of the jump rings and put it through the little loop you made on the tack.

    Once you got one through you can add as many jump rings you want on to the end of it (depending on how much you want them to dangle. I only added two to each one and they are the perfect length for me.)

    Step 3

    After you are done adding jump rings. Put them on a fish hook wire and you are done!

    (Sorry if this how-to is kind of confusing. This is the first one I have done. If you have any questions please ask!)
