Upcycled Plastic And Nail Polish Earrings

"I was curious if I could make earrings from some plastic packaging my new ear buds came in. It worked! It was easy to cut the plastic packaging into strips and paint them with bright colors of old nail polish. The hardest thing to do was WAIT for the polish to completely dry. LOL. All it took was a few beads and some jewelry findings to finish the project. This would be a fun project to do at a pre-teen slumber party."
