I don't know where GF got idea for these but so simple maybe you all have made them. Xmas tree earrings. 2 gold colored head pins 2 gold colored beads-4 or 5 mm. 6 green starburst (pinwheel) 18 mm. 6 green starbursts 12 mm. 2 red 6mm beads 2 gold earrings kind that look like a shepards hook. Divide the above into 2 piles, Take headpin & stack 1 gold colored bead be sure it is slightly bigger than end of headpin. (trunk)now 2 18mm starburst then 2 12mm starbursts & 1 red 6mm bead make loopin the area above the red bead & be sure everything is on tight,then hook to earring. Repeat for 2nd 1. Very easy, very cute & if you have the supplies on hand don't have to buy anything. They are about 1 1/8 in. long on the part you stacked from gold bead to red bead. I gave them to relatives before xmas last yr & they loved them. Hope you enjoy!! Jan
