Spiral Christmas Tree Earrings

Spiral Christmas Tree Earrings

These Christmas tree earrings are a lovely handmade gift idea for someone special this festive season.

This project is a great way to practice wire wrapping or for a beginner who wants a challenge!

Step by Step Instructions

1. Cut the length of wire in half, one half for each earring.

2. Bend a small loop in the wire with round nose pliers.

3. Use snipe nose pliers to form a spiral - hold the spiral flat between the plier jaws and keep adjusting your grip as you bend your wire around itself.

4. Stretch our the spiral to form the shape of a tree.

5. Create a loop at the bottom of the tree and thread a bead onto a headpin and then through the tree.

6. Cut any excess wire using side cutters, leaving enough room to form a loop at the top of the tree.

7. Attach an earwire to complete the look.

8. Repeat this process to create another Christmas tree earring.

*Please note that due to current stock, we have added slightly different earwires to those featured in the photo to the shopping list.
