Chic Wire Tree
This little wire tree is one of the easiest and least expensive ornaments you will ever make, yet they look stunning on a dark green
tree en masse. Bend a 24" piece of thick but pliable wire (I don't know the gauge, but it's firm, yet not too hard to bend) into a
coil for the base. Put 1 bead on the wire, then bend into the bottom 'branch'. Keep doing this like in the photo. When it is the height you want,
cut the wire leaving about 4". Wind this into a coil for the tree top. For a more traditional look, use gold wire and multicolored
beads. The sample in the photo is about 3.5" tall.
