Pepsi Can Earrings Tutorial

Diet Cherry Pepsi is my favorite drink of all time

So how could I resist?
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20 minutes to make 3-6 hours to dry
Cost: Cheap (Dimensional Magic is $4.99)
Fun-ness: Super fun


Materials:
Pepsi Can
Small Coin
Pen
Scissors
Hot Glue Gun
Dimensional Magic Mod Podge
Earring Hooks

Step 1: Cutting the Can
Grab your closest Pepsi can, and cut out the largest logo. Decide what part of the logo you want to be on your coin. Trace the coin onto the back of the can (in case you mess up), and then cut it out. Try to cut it a little bit smaller than you traced, that way it'll fit perfectly!

Step 2: Attaching the Logo
Hot glue the logo onto the coin. Then use the "Dimensional Magic" and cover it completely. Get right up next to the edges. Let it dry from 3-6 hours. If you touch it, you'll get finger prints. 
Step 3: Attaching the Earrings
I got earring backs from Joanne's. There were probably 50 backs for 2 or 3 bucks. Not bad. For this project, you gotta bend the earring loop on the bottom so it's facing the opposite way (just look at the pictures....) Glop some hot glue on your coin, and press the earring into the hot glue. Put some extra on for good measure. 

And that's it! Now you can feel super awesome wearing your Pepsi Can Earrings...
Or just be the coolest mom EVER that makes them for your daughter...
