I always think about making things for educators’, mothers, friends and females for Christmas; so, when I saw this I thought it would be easy and different idea to make. As a mother/teacher, I enjoyed getting things that were handmade. I always appreciate the time it takes to make things. This does need wire cutters and pliers which I keep one hand because I used to make flower arrangements and wedding arrangement. This will need them.
Green Wire Christmas tree Earrings
Note: You need to make two trees to make up these earrings, but you could easily convert this wire tree into a pendant and add to chain or a red ribbon.
Material: *16 inches of 22-gauge Peridot silver plated craft wire, *2 - 1 3/4 inch 20-gauge Burgundy colored craft wire, Wire cutters, Chain-nosed pliers, Round-nosed pliers, Nylon-nosed pliers, *Soft Flex craft wire was used in this project.
Direction for trees:
Cut two pieces of green wire, each 8 inches long.
Use round-nose pliers to make a curl on one end of one piece of wire.
Grasp the curled wire with nylon-nose pliers, and use your fingers to form the wire into a coil. Finish Wire Coil
Continue to coil the wire until you have reached the end of the wire.
Use round-nose pliers to make a tiny curl on the end of the wire just after the coil ends.
Pull Wire Center
Grasp the center of the coil (which was the first curl made in step 2), and pull it so that it is sticking straight up.Pull Out Wire
With your fingers, grasp the center coil (from step 5) and pull on the outer part of the coil to expand the rings of the coil. Try ensuring there is about the same amount of space between each ring of the coil.
Repeat 2 to 6 to make another wire coil tree component.
Use the red wire to make earring hooks.
Attach a red ear hook to the top of each tree component.
You can make and extra tree and get a chain necklace and attach the tree to make a pendant and give both items as a gift.
