Piranha Plant Earrings! #tbt

 Piranha Plant Earrings!
 I absolutely love Mario Brothers.
And I absolutely love geek inspired crafts.
 
These Piranha Plant earrings are my favorite to date!

Let's make some.
You will need:
RED, GREEN and WHITE polymer clay
2 toothpicks
2 Earring backs
hobby knife
Roll 2 red balls.
Mine were 4 grams each.
Cut out a notch...so they look like pacman.
 Take the earring back and gently push it in the open notch.
 Push it barely under the surface and smooth the clay over it.
Careful not to push it in too deep or it will not go
 through the ear lobe far enough to put the back on.
 Smooth it out.
 Do for both sides.
(I do both sides at the same time...)
Now for the greenery.
 You will need...
2 mini marshmallow sized pieces.
2 tubes
4 leaves
 Take a thin snake and roll it flat...
 Add to the top edge of the marshmallows to make a planter pot...
Or a pipe?
 Now take those short tubes and cut a toothpick in half.
 Push a pick through each tube.
 Insert the blunt end into the pipe piece.
With the sharp point ready for the head.

 Go ahead and put the heads on.

Pinch and smooth on the leaves to the sides of the tubes.
Sometimes lightly scoring the clay helps it adhere easier.
 Now the white.
Make a thin snake.
 And give that open mouth some lips?
 And add some spots.
I did 3.
Repeat for the other side.
 Bake in the oven according to package directions.
I baked mine at 275* F for 25 minutes.
 Let them cool completely and admire.
 Place them on your ears!
 And no matter how you wear your hair,
they will look amazing!
 Just like a little piranha plant biting your ear.
You could add teeth and a tongue...but they wouldn't show.

 You will get lots of attention too!
This really is the PERFECT Valentine's Day gift!
