    Since my last experience with the magical

    shrinkable plastic, I had some leftovers. So I came

    up with todays project for a pair of cute handmade

    jewelry earrings. Its a kind of thin plastic that

    shrinks up to 70% of its original size. You can create

    a number of accessories using this kind of DIY

    jewelry supplies. Im sure you will be thrilled with

    the results and possibilities!

    Needed DIY jewelry supplies:

    Shrinkable Plastic

    Decorative Bead (pearl in this project)

    Earring Hook



    Fabric Scrap


    Round Nose Plier

    Side Cutting Plier

    Paper Punch

    How to make this handmade jewelry:

    Step 1: work with the shrinkable plastic

    1. Take a piece of paper and draw out the shape you want. In this case I created a fun shell shape.

    Cut the pattern out;

    2. Cut out the same pattern in the plastic;

    3. Punch a hole at the top and the bottom of your shape;

    4. Heat the plastic in an oven at 130 to150 Celsius degrees. Make sure you place a piece of baking

    paper under it;

    5. After 3 minutes, take it out and wait for it to cool down. Paint the plastic with a dazzling nail

    polish color and let it dry completely.
