1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Bon-Bons glitter choker on: August 04, 2005 02:28:54 PM
My digital camera wasn't working, so I scanned it. I couldn't think of a way to scan my head though, so it's not on me in the pictures. The first picture is of the front...

And the back...

Incase anyone wants to know how I did this, I'll post some instructions. While this is easy for some people, it may be new to others.

1. I heated up a needle with a lighter and poked two holes in the lid of a glitter container. Just be careful to use a long needle and hold the very back. Or if it's short, use tweezers.

2. Go through these holes two more times to make them slightly bigger. You can see the black spots on the lid in the pictures? A couple of times I didn't get the needle through fast enough so I heated it back up while halfway through the lid. Once I got too close and burnt it. Maybe I should put a picture on it?

3. Thread elastic through the back of the lid through one hole, then through the front of the other hole. Add some beads, and voila, you have a choker! If you're like me, you'll add this to your collection of 20.
