Wire & Bead Christmas Tree
This is the wire and bead Christmas tree I made last weekend. Sometimes you want to sit down, relax and watch a show or movie just for fun, but you don’t feel like wasting time. This is the perfect kind of project for those times and all you need is a few materials:
I used a thick floral wire that is sold in packages and thin paddle wire. I also used some pliers and a wire cutter. In addition, I had some beads that I bought at a garage sale a few years ago.
Here’s another angle on the completed Christmas Tree:
Making the wire and bead Christmas Tree:
I took 2 pieces of the thick floral wire and bent them around each other in the middle.
3 half-lengths became the supporting sides of the tree and then I use the fourth to start winding around them to make it strong. I used another length of wire to complete the basic frame as well.
I unrolled a long arm’s length of the paddle wire (you can always twist on more or less later), and started winding it around the frame, adding beads as I went. I did this until I was happy with how it looked.
Like I said, this is a great armchair project. Enjoy!
