The GOOD news is that I made this ornament much earlier today, but I didn't get a chance to post about it until now.
Here's the ornament
Yep, it's another tree, but this one's made of wire.
For all the details, read on.
20 gauge wire
Round nose pliers/wire cutter
Beads in a variety of colors
To start I used the round nose pliers to create a loop at the top of the tree.
I used the same cone that I used for yesterday's ornament, and I wrapped the wire around the tree.
Here's what it looked like when I pulled it off the cone.
I added the beads to the wire in no particular order - I liked the randomness of it.
And here's what I learned:
- This took about 20 minutes from start to finish.
- I'm glad that I decided to use a small cone, especially since I used such small beads. Any more wire and it would have turned into quite a tedious process.
- Next time I would like to periodically add a large bead to make it look more like Christmas ornaments are on the tree.
