How to Make Cheap Clip-on Earrings
Ok, suppose you want to wear an ear/nose/nipple/navel/whatever ring,
but you don't want to pierce it.Or maybe you want to try it out for a
while before you decide. Well, there's a cheap and easy way to make
hoop earrings without having to pay for it.
First you will need:
It's really simple. Here's what you do:
- A spiral notebook
- Wire cutters
- A file (optional)
- Get a spiral note book. Make sure the
spiral binding is the right size for the earrings you want. Also make
sure they are the right colour.
- Cut off the
end of the spiral. Count the number of earrings you want and
cut a little more than that number off the end of the notebook's spiral

- Bend the loops flat. just bend the loops
into flat hoops of the shape you want. The end pieces probably won't

- File the ends (or don't). The ends will be a bit
rough, so you have 2 options:
I always did number 1, but I never had a decent file.
- Deal with it.
- File until content.
That's it. Now you have a never ending supply of fake earrings!
