okay- so i have no idea where to get more mini army men- these are about the size of the fishhook earrings- but i love them to death.

(sorry for the extreme craposity of the photo... camera phone.)
one's an army man, one's a heart button (you could use any kind of heart charm, bead, etc.) and they are my new favorite earrings. and they took, like, 12 seconds to make.
thanks for looking!

Tehehehe... they are groovy. How did you make the hole in the little guy? (Does that sound vaguely obscene??)

i started off with a safety pin, stabbed that through him ( not obscene but kinda morbid...?) and then used a kilt pin, which is like a giant safety pin, to make the hole bigger. he's made of pretty soft/thin plastic so it wasn't hard.
