Bad idea. Plugs are created with specific sizes, lengths, and materials, and are made for the purpose of jewelry. Making your own would be not only a hard task, but it would also create a health risk.
Have you considered alternatives? Such as illusion plugs? They are 16g (standard piercing size), but the ends appear to be 0g.
Like I said I have several old smaller gauges I'd be willing to sterilize and send you if you wanted. I even have some tapers I swiped from my roommate for 6g and 8g.
