Hello! My name is Zizi and I'm 10 years old.
I love making decorations for my hearing aids.
Here I am going to teach you how to make your own decorations!

I will teach you to make dangling charm decorations, and also twisty decorations that go around the tubes.
Also, I will tell you how I use beads and stickers to decorate my aids.

Some of the decorations are easy to make, but some are difficult and you will need a grown-up to help you.

My mum and dad help me make my decorations for my hearing aids.

Tutorial: Difficult star charm decoration

Today we have been making lots of decorations with stars!

This is a difficult one. My dad made them using a pair of clip-on earrings from Claire's. We also used a small toggle clasp, which we bought online. We only use the round bit of the clasp, not the stick bit. We also used some wire:

First you have to remove the decoration from the earring itself:

That leaves you with a small ring, and from that ring hung the sticks with the stars. Here is the ring:

Using some small pliers, you have to open the small ring:

It looks like this:

Then you take close the ring around the toggle clasp, like this:

And this is the end result, two hanging star decorations:
