Instead of tossing those plastic bread tags, turn them into jazzy jewelry with a bit of paint and this idea from Heidi Borchers of Inspired at Home. Every little bit helps when reducing your amount of household plastic waste. Best of all, when people ask you where you bought your fantastic jewelry, you will have some fantastic bragging rights!
Paint both sides of each tab black. Let dry. For necklace charm, glue 5 tabs together, using 1 tab with paper strips at top of charm (see photo). Let dry. In the same manner, glue 4 tabs together for each earring. Referring to photo for design inspiration, paint 1 side of each tab, necklace charm, and earring design with metallic dimensional paint. Let dry.
Using needlenose pliers, attach 1 jump ring to each of 20 tabs. Attach 1 jump ring to necklace charm. Attach a second jump ring to each jump ring. To assemble necklace, link together all size-10 snap swivels. Attach jump rings to necklace. For each earring, remove snap from each size-7 snap swivel. Using needlenose pliers, attach 1 jump ring to each earring design. Attach jump ring to 1 end of 1 size-7 swivel. Attach fishhook earring to other end of swivel.
Repeat for other earring.
Heidi’s Designer Tip: For added strength, be sure to add a dab of dimensional paint over area where you glued strip of paper. This will give added strength to this area where the jump rings are attached.
