DIY earrings from Lindt chocolate bunny bells

Hey chocolate lovers!  Now that Easter is well and truly past, I'm assuming that you've eaten through your entire stash of Easter chocolates.
Grandma Monkeys rather generously gifts all her grandkids with Lindt chocolate bunnies every year, which leaves my Cheeky Monkeys with the dilemma of what to do with the leftover bell after you've eaten the chocolate.
Well, here is a quick and easy solution for those who want to avoid sending items to landfill!

Supplies
- 2 x Lindt chocolate bunny bells (or any bells you have on hand)
- 2 x gold-plated earhooks
- jewellery pliers

STEP 1
Gather your supplies, keeping aside the chocolate bunnies for post jewellery-making consumption if you haven't already eaten them.

STEP 2
Using your jewellery pliers, open the loop at the bottom of the earhooks. Hang one bell onto an earhook loop, then close the loop.  Repeat with the other bell and earhook and you're done!

Alternatives
- If you want your earrings to look a little festive, you could tie a mini ribbon bow to the bells
- Collect enough bells, and you could attach them to gold-plated chain to make a fun bracelet or anklet
