Milk bottles have a softer type of plastic lid that can be pierced. Regular hard plastic may not be suitable.
1. Use the needle to pierce the side of the top in 2 places. If you find it difficult to pierce, try placing the bottom of the needle on the table and pushing the lid onto it. Make sure your fingers are out of the way. 2. Thread the needle with dental floss and thread it through the 2 holes in the lid. *Any type of thread can be used,  but dental floss is ideal as it is thin, yet very strong and less likely to snap. 3. Coat the lid in glue and stick on your decorations. Leave the pendant to dry before decorating the sides. 4. Thread beads onto the dental floss and tie the ends. Or, cut a pre-made necklace and tie the ends to the floss. Optional: cover the sides of the pendants with ribbon, glitter or more decorations.Pendants e

    I love how light reflects from your pendants! The idea is very good and easy to make, thanks for sharing it. I must keep this in mind – our milk doesn’t come in bottles, but some juice cartons have similar plastic lids.
