Decorate Yourself For the Holidays
We spend a lot of time decorating our house for the holidays: lights go up around the front door and all around the big back porch, and we collect evergreen boughs from the woods that are tied together with big, red ribbons. I tend to get a little carried away inside the house, too. The mantel over the fireplace is suddenly full of carved wood snowmen, reindeer made from something that resembles Astroturf, and huge candles in the form of evergreen trees. Yep, I love decorating for the holidays, especially when it comes to decorating myself!
I don't make a lot of earrings during the year, but the holidays are the perfect time for me to practice my earring making. Crystal beads, precious metals, and mixed media jewelry-making supplies are my favorites for holiday earring making projects!
Decorating yourself for the holidays can be just as much fun as decorating your house! Just grab a few of your favorite beads and jewelry-making supplies, and a copy of Create Christmas Jewelry from the editors of Beadwork and Jewelry Stringing magazines. Keep your beads handy, because if there's one thing that you might need to do during the holiday season, it's make a pair of earrings for yourself or for a last-minute gift!
