What can I make out of floral wire and a bunch of craft beads? You guessed it! A Beaded Wire Tree!
It's simple enough, just cut the wire (24 gauge), thread a bead of your choice to the middle of the folded wire, and twist several times to secure the bead in place.
Next, separate one of the wires at the base of the twist and thread a second bead about 1 1/2 inches (or less), from the first twist, and twist again several times.
Continue, alternating wires, threading a bead and twisting to form branches.
I made ten of these,and grouped them in pairs.
I had five groups of two, twisted together, to form the tree branches . . . . .
I then put all the beaded branches together and twisted several times
I rearrange the wire branches and beads randomly, opting for "narrow roots" at the base.
I found a rock outside (we have plenty, from tiny to boulder sizes) and secured the tree with a "Gloop" of glue. I draped the wire roots over the rock.
I like the way the tree looks, with the blending of colors . . . . and I hope you do too!
