This is for all those girls in your life who got a new doll for Christmas - or who already had one. My daughter got a real American Girl Doll from Santa this year - she has a few Our Generation 18 inch dolls from Target as well.
Anyways, have you ever looked into getting their ear's pierced - kinda pricey. Did you can know you can Do It Yourself - and it's easy!
We actually did this a couple of months ago (you might have caught the post on FB) but I wanted to save the blog post for the new year for anyone who had new dolls.
This is based on the American Girl Doll Earrings - note that they have significantly thicker posts than regular earrings. So you'll need those earrings, and a 5/64" drill bit, and a drill:
Just decided where the hole needs to, then start drilling slowly:

Then you have to push and wiggle the stud in - you can keep it as just a stud or add the dangle piece for extra fun:

That's it!! Super easy DIY. Trevor blogged about his view of this project over at So I Married a Craft Blogger if you want to read more about it.
