O Christmas Tree!

About this design:

I'm sure that many of us have seen these pretty crystal Christmas trees before, but for those who haven't, they are very simple to make. I made them for my family and friends last year for Christmas. Simply string the crystals, in the right order, on a headpin and attach to ear wires.

    Very pretty,and delicate. I’m intrigued by the shape of the flat crystals. Can’t figure out what shape they are. Can you share that with me? ;)

    Thank you, Nancy. They are Swarovski’s margarita crystals. They are flat and kind of flower shaped, and center drilled. Very simple to make! :)

    I have made these, too. They sparkle like mad! :) Love yours–mine were all one color for the tree part but I like your idea to use 2 colors!

    I love your take on these! I have seen them in various shades of green or just crystal, but the crystal & green combo is new to me! Winner! :)
