Little Ghost Earrings

This is a fun project that you can do with your children, or make a pair for yourself.  Believe me when I tell you that just about everyone who sees you wearing these will want a pair.  Have fun, and be sure to check back soon for Part Two.  Feel free to email me with any questions you might have, and I'd love it if you'd leave a comment if you like the video.  Thanks!
