1. Prep the ornament

As mentioned, this project is so straightforward; you can make these DIY Christmas ornament earrings in minutes. All you need is a pair of mini Christmas baubles and rings hooks.

The first step is to carefully pull your bauble apart, as shown. Do this carefully, especially if the ornament is made of glass. The top part should come off easily, then take out the wire part.
