What I'm Making: Broken Ornament Earrings

Have you ever unpacked all your beautiful Christmas decorations, excited to start decorating your tree, just to find that a few have broken. That happened to us this year. Luckily, the one that broke wasn't a favorite.

Not to let it go to waste, I decided that it would be perfect to make earrings out of.

The ornament was made of wire so I trimmed off the leaves using wire cutters.

I used two jump rings (one on each side of the center wire) to attach the sheppard hooks.

There! Two pairs of perfectly festive earrings.

Have you ever broken an ornament? Would you on purpose if you could make cute jewelery out of it?
