Ooo...look. A frozen margarita concoction and some colorful party paper lanterns. Party time! These images and the colors just remind me of Summer fun and lively gatherings. I think you can see where I got my inspiration from, can't you? I made the earrings inspired by a Cino De Mayo fiesta we hosted at our house this year. Yep, these are the photos I took of the party that day and yes, that is one of my specialty frozen margarita drinks. I make a pretty rockin' margarita, if I do say so myself. ;) Okay, before you get your party on, it's time to get your craft on first. Here's how to make the Fiesta Fringe Earrings:

22 glass 6mm rounds
