Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 4: Stylish Slender Trees

With all the festivities and end of year parties that December brings, it's sometimes hard to find time to fit your crafting in. So today, I have a quick and easy design for you that will take just 10-15 minutes to complete. After all, who doesn't need a time saver at this time of the year?!!

The earrings for Day 4 of the Twelve Days of Christmas are called Stylish Slender Trees.

Stylish Slender Trees - Finished length 7.5cm (3")
To make the Stylish Slender Trees you'll need:
Tools: chain nose pliers, round nose pliers, flush cutters

String a small cone bead, two snowflake spacers, a large cone bead and a small cone bead on a head pin.

Slide a filigree cone end down over the last two cone beads. The seam of the cone bead will separate a little to accommodate the larger cone bead. String a star bead.

Grip the head pin as close as you can to the star bead and bend the head pin at a 90° angle.

Trim it to 10mm (3/8") and turn a simple loop.

Attach the loop of the Christmas tree to the earring wire. Make a second earring to match and you have a pair of stylish earrings to wear to your Christmas gatherings that took just minutes to make!

I hope you'll stop by to see the other designs I come up with in the coming days.

'Til next time.....
