Make earrings out of paperclips easy! You´ll need a couple of paperclips, earring backs, a wire cutter and a utility knife. 1. Open the paperclip and twirl it so that you’ll get a spiral. 2. Remove the rubber from the start of the spiral using the knife. This part will go in your ear, so make sure it is long enough. 3. Cut of the superfluous part at the end of the spiral. This is it. You might wanna burn the metal before put it in your ear!
