DIY: Anti-dust phone plug

Hey Beauties!

I do a lot of browsing on Ebay and I saw very pretty anti-dust plugs for phones. I was about to order one, but then decided to make it. Here is how I did it :).


The first thing is to take old ear phones and used the part which goes into the devices to connect. Let's just call it plug thing :). I am sure a lot of you have old plastic ear plugs that you wanted to throw away. Well, if you didn't, here is a chance to reuse them.



I used modeling clay to make two hearts as a base for my plug. There's nothing to it. Make a ball, then flatten it and use a regular knife to get the shape of the heart. Don't worry if it's not perfect, you can remodel it after it has been baked.




Before the backing I put a needle through one, which will be dangling down. One of the hearts I placed on the phone plug thing, to create a whole on which it will later be.



After it is backed by instructions on the clay, you can use sandpaper to file it down and make the surface of a heart as smooth as you want it to be. 



I used all purposed glue to add nail rhinestones on the heart that has a whole. It may not look all that in close, but it gives a nice shine from far away.




The other one I painted with nail polish and drew some baroque design on. I know, I am a little obsessed with this baroque thing :). Then I glued it on the plug thing.


At the end I added some small beads to one of them, and gold small chain to the other one, to really get the whole look together. Here is how it came out.






Like I always say, if you have to much time, try it and please send me some photos ;).
