Making a Mini Three-Dimensional Christmas Tree with Glass Beads and Brass Wire
Summary: This is a three-dimensional christmas tree minature, which is quite adorable and suitable to be christamas gift. This tutorial shows details about making this wire wrapped christams tree!
There are lots of two-dimensional christmas tree tutorials on webs, what if you want to make a three-dimensional mini christmas tree as gift for others? Here I will satisfy this demand: showing the details about making a cute christmas tree with brass wire and glass beads.
Necessites for this three-dimensional wire christmas tree:
0.5mm light orange brass wire
4mm green glass seed beads
4mm ivory glass pearl beads
Flat nose plier
The instructions on making three dimensional Christmas tree:
Step 1: Make the tree’s top layer
1st, pick a 50cm length of brass wire and string 4 green beads and 1 ivory pearl on;
2nd, back the wire through the green beads and tighten it;
3rd, secure beads by twining the wire ends around each other;
4th, string 3 green beads and 1 pearl on wire end and repeat above process;
5th, when finishing five 3-green-bead branches, twine the wire ends together;
6th, the 4-green-bead branch is the Christmas tree’s top, and the whole is the top layer.
Step 2: Make the tree’s middle layer
1st, pick a 55cm length of brass wire and string 4 green beads and 1 pearl on;
2nd, refer to step 1 to make other branches, but be noticed that each branch in this layer consists of one pearl and 4-6 green beads;
3rd, finishing 7-8 branches, twine the wire ends together;
4th, make 3 such middle layers.
Step 3: Make the bottom layer
1st, pick another 55cm length of brass wire and string 10 green beads and 1 pearl;
2nd, still repeat step 1 processes, and the green beads range from 6-10;
3rd, at last twine the wire ends together to finish the 1st bottom layer;
4th, repeat to make another two.
Step 4: Assemble the layers together
1st, connect middle layers to top layer with a 1.5cm interval in between;
2nd, similarly connect bottom layers to top and middle layers;
3rd, twine all the wire ends together.
Step 5: Finish the tree’s stem
1st, leave 3cm length for tree’s stem, bend the rest wire up;
2nd, twine the wires around each other.
The final three-dimensional wire Christmas tree is like this:
Tada! I have finished this mini Christmas tree! This three dimensional wire wrapped Christmas tree seems to have more steps than other projects, but each step is very simple to understand, especially the first three steps almost repeat the same process. You can make it as following the Christmas craft instructions!
