Christmas trees that are earrings!  I have them done in 2 sizes.  They are done plain, with, star, with Mylar and done with hot fix crystals and metals.  All  tatting is completely free standing.

The small size of the earrings are less than 2 inches tall without the star and about 2-1/4 inches with the star.  The medium size of the earrings are about 1-1/3 inches tall without the star and about 1-3/4 inches with the star.

Can be used as earrings, pendant or as an ornament.

These are free-standing designs.  EASY.  I used a regular weight (40 wt.) embroidery thread for all designs shown in this set.

I made this design so you can add hot fix crystals or hot fix metals in each of the ring sections.  I used 20 SS (5 mm) for the "tree" part of these and a smaller 10 SS (~2.8 mm) crystal for the center of the star.  The designs have some extra stitches to allow you to add the crystals or metals inside the rings in the tree. 

I made a free-standing star for these too.  You can use metallic threads if you like.  That is what I used for these two.

This is the small size of the design with crystals.  I put two of the tree earrings in each design for you.

Complete instructions included.

This one is the larger (medium) size of the tree earrings.  I used a rayon thread for the star.

 I used hot fix metals (4 mm) for this one or you can use a 20 SS (5 mm) size of crystals to make them look very full or a 16 SS (4 mm) size to not be as big.  I thought these looked like Christmas balls.  I used a 10 SS(~2.8 mm) crystal for the center of the star on this one too.


Complete instructions included.

Joyce sent me this picture of a project she did with the tatting earrings.  She attached it to a lovely bar of soap.  Isn't it gorgeous?  What a great gift idea.

These are the medium size of the trees with Mylar.  So EASY!  Just stitch, rinse and dry flat.  That is all there is to do it.  You can add very tiny crystals to the spots where the rings join if you like.  I think it would look good with just one in the center of each of the stars.  These stars are done with metallic thread. 

I like to get my Mylar from here -

I stitched these with white thread and used Mylar.  I also used a metallic thread for the stars.  This is the small version with Mylar

Here are the medium tatting Christmas trees with stars.  I used a rayon thread for the stars.  All of these designs fit in a 4x4 inch (100x100 mm) hoop. 

VERY EASY!

The trees on the right (2 of them) are from Tatting 80.  I have them to show you the difference in size compared to the new earring design sizes.  The 2 on the left are the "plain" earring designs - small and medium sizes.

Here is what the crystal designs look like before you add the crystals or metals to them.

These are the 2 sizes of "plain" free-standing tatting Christmas trees.  I did the one on the left with a metallic thread.  You can add an ornament hanger for an instant ornament or add wires for earrings.  They are small enough that they are very quick to stitch.

Each of the Mylar and Star designs can be done as a plain version.  Just skip the first and last color for the Mylar and the last color for the Stars.

EASY!

This one is the small design done with crystals.  It really shines with all the crystals and the metallic thread for the star.

I'm holding one of the medium sized earrings with the hot fix metals on it so you can get an idea of the size.

This one is the small design done with Mylar and a star.  It is small enough for those who don't like to wear bigger earrings.  And they are as light as air!  The Mylar makes it look like it has tiny jewels all over it.
