Christmas Tree Earrings

If you're in a pinch for some holiday cheer upon your ears, then these simple seed bead earrings are just the holiday miracle you've been looking for. With just a little wire and a handful of beads, these can be made in just minutes.

    What You'll Need:
  • Craft wire (scraps will work, you only need 6" for each earring.)

  • Seed beads. Use green or brown for the trunk of the tree, green for the branch areas and a few bright colors for ornaments if you like. In all, you'll need around 75 seed beads for each earring.

  • Jewelry pliers. Regular pliers could work, but you really need the rounded ends of a pair of jewelry pliers to get the curves and curls on these earrings. Jewelry pliers are available at any craft store.

  • Ear hooks. You can buy a pack of these at the jewelry store, or even make your own with a bit of wire.

Once you've gathered your materials, let's get started.
