DIY Pepsi Can Earrings

DIY Pepsi Can Earrings:



What you'll need:

- Pepsi can
- Scissors
- Small Coin
- Pen
- Hot Glue Gun
- Earrings
- Dimensional Magic Mod Podge



How to make it:

1. Grab your closest Pepsi can, and cut out the largest logo. Decide what part of the logo you want to be on your coin. 

2. Trace the coin onto the back of the can (in case you mess up), and then cut it out. Try to cut it a little bit smaller than you traced, that way it'll fit perfectly!


3. Hot glue the logo onto the coin. 

4. Then use the "Dimensional Magic" and cover it completely. Get right up next to the edges. Let it dry from 3-6 hours. If you touch it, you'll get finger prints. 


5. For this project, you have to bend the earring loop on the bottom so it's facing the opposite way. Glop some hot glue on your coin, and press the earring into the hot glue. Put some extra on for good measure.

How to do it:

1. Set guidelines. Using a marker, draw a guideline 2 inches from the edge of the wood base. Mark four even points on the circle. Fold and press the muslin into fourths. Smooth muslin over the batting layers, turn upside down, then match up the folds in the muslin with the lines on the base. Start stapling the muslin around the wood base, keeping the muslin folds aligned with the marker points.

2. Add the fabric. Center decorative textile or fabric over the muslin, smoothing in place, then staple to the base as with Step 1, dividing into four sections and easing the fabric as you go.

Step 2: Add the Fabric

3. Add embellishments. Add a decorative edge by stapling the trim piece to the base. Allowing 3/4 inch along trim edge, position right sides together, then staple through the waistband buckram to secure the trim.

Step 3: Embellishments

4. Add some glam.Turn back the decorative edge and glue in place with fabrics glue. Add decorative embellishments such as beads and sequins if desired.

Step 4: Add Some Glam

5. Finally attach feet to the base (paint them first) with mounting hardware. Screw hardware to the base, then attach feet. Add decorative casters for a final flourish.

Step 5: Add the Feet
