Hi everyone! Grin

I wanted some earrings to wear on the first day of my makeup artistry course (which starts on Monday 4th February - eek!), so I made these!
They're made out of tiny toy cars that I had as a kid! The cars themselves are around 3.5cm long.
Here they are:



What do ya think? Cheesy

Thanks everyone! Grin

Surprisingly not! They're so light that I forget that I'm wearing them. Cheesy

That's a great idea to use your cars for... I might have to steal that, I have too many of those tiny cars! They're so cute! Smiley

Steal away! Hehe Tongue
Yeah I have quite a few more too, I LOVED them when I was a kid!
The good thing with these ones is that they had a little extra piece on them that I was able to wrap a piece of wire around (see pics) so that made it really easy to make them into earrings. But my other little cars don't have that extra piece on them so I'm wondering how I'd make them into charms/earrings without destroying them..

Anyway, thanks again everyone. Cheesy
