Day 2: Christmas Tree Earrings by Barb B

Season's Greetings Dominoians!

It's Day 2 of DominoART's 24 Days of Christmas Festival and
Barb B joins us today to share her gorgeous and oh so Christmas-y earrings!

 I'm happy to be once again working with my friend Leigh here at DominoART and contributing to DominoART's 24 Days of Christmas.

If you were following this blog in October, you'll know that I did a pair of earrings for the 31 Days of Halloween challenge. I thought I'd repeat the effort and change it up to Christmas. It's funny, I don't do a lot of decorating for Christmas, but I am all about wearing Christmas-y earrings allllll month long! I'm just festive that way.

For these earrings, I used bamboo dominoes. They are much lighter than the standard plastic or resin dominoes, so they work well for earrings. The stamp I used is from Stampin' Up! I'm sorry to say I have no idea what set it came from, but it's old!

I stamped the tree using my Tsukineko Glue Pad and then dusted it with Elegant Emerald Ultra Fine glitter. Make sure you let the glue dry thoroughly (about 10 minutes) before you dust off any extra glitter with a dry brush.

I topped the tree with some rhinestone stars that I probably got a Ben Franklin a hundred years ago. Then all I had to do was loop the wire through the pre-drilled holes in the dominoes, secure it with a couple of beads and attach it to the earring finding.

Although these took a bit of time, they're not overly labor intensive and they were a lot of fun to do! Now I have another set of festive danglers to adorn myself with! 

Let's see what magical altered goodies tomorrow brings!

Domino Hugs!
