1) needle and thread
2) red, green, gold or silver mini pom poms
3) 6 brass head pins 2" nickel plated; bend the pin head up to make a ring.
4) wire cutters
Step 1: thread a pom pom onto your thread but leave a long tail to tie a knot with.
Step 2: thread your head pin onto the same yarn and tie a knot twice and trim. if you like you can add tacky glue or something to keep the knot tied permanently.
Step 4: adding one pin at a time and using your pliers twist the top of the pin into a second loop and secure with flat pliers so that it hangs on the earring
I saw some beautiful earrings like this at Wal-mart but I really didn't want to pay $5.00 for a pair. these cost me a lot less and they're just as awesome!
I made this holly and poinsettia table runner for a mantle decoration but we don't have a mantle so it's going on a box we're using as a coffee table. Or in my case a Hot cocoa table! I got the pattern for the holly leaves from: crochetgeek.com and the poinsettia pattern from: planetjune.com
this will be entered into the decorate to celebrate challenge: http://decoratetocelebrate.blogspot.com/
Happy Crafting everyone!
p.s. I didn't make any cards this week since I've been focusing on getting Christmas presents made and wrapped. I'll have some soon
