Lucite Acrylic Christmas Tree and Crystal Earrings
These super adorable little Christmas Tree earrings are so quick to make they are the perfect go-to gift for everyone on your list. On a two inch headpin, stack a 6mm square crystal bead, either 3 or 4 lucite acrylic 5-petal flowers (upside down), add a smaller 5-petal flower (upside down) and top with a 4mm bicone crystal bead. Make a wire wrapped loop and slip the little Christmas Tree onto your favorite ear wire.
I like to make them interesting by choosing a variety of flower colors both in a matte and clear finish. Try a matte white flower for a winter wonderland effect or red matte for a pop of color. Choose crystal beads in your favorite colors for a bit of sparkle and shine.
