Tinsel Earrings


Tinsel garland

2 Head pins

Sequins or beads

2 Earring loops

Round-nosed pliers


1. Roll the tinsel garland into a pom pom. If the garland is made of wire it should stay in place. Otherwise, tie a thread around to secure the garland in place.

2. Put a sequin onto the head pin and stick the head pin through the pom pom.

3. Use round-nosed pliers to make a loop at the top of the head pin.

4. Stick the earring hook through the loop, and close the loops with pliers.
