Are you always on the look out for fun crafts to use? Do you like to reuse items to keep them out of the trash? If you answered yes to either one or both, then I have a DIY craft project for you. I am going to show you how to make a fun pair of earrings from some old Lego’s. They are very light on the ears and cute and fun to wear.
If you do not have any old Lego’s and still would like to make these, you can pick a small pack at a dollar store for just $1 and they will work just fine.
DIY: Repurposed Lego Earrings
2 Flat Lego’s (any color)
4 Jump Rings (either use from an old pair or buy for less than $1 at a craft store)
2 Hook Earrings
Wood Burner or Soldering iron
Lay the Lego pieces on a piece of cardboard. Take the wood burner or soldering iron and melt a hole on the top at one end of each of the Lego’s. Now on that same end, melt a hole at the very end of the Lego. Take a the knife (I use an X-Acto knife) and scrap off any rough edges from where you melted the holes.
Take one of the jump rings and separate it so that it is open. Run it in one hole and out the other. Then clamp it closed with the pliers. Now take another jump ring and run it through the one on the Lego. Add the earring hook to that ring (make sure you have it so that the Lego will face the right way when wearing them) pinch that ring closed with the pliers.
There you go! Easy right!? You now have a new pair of DIY earrings made from repurposed Lego’s.
