Step 2: Making the wire-tree skeleton
Now to shape the branches. Take a pencil and the thin wire and use the same strategy, but instead of drilling a hole in the pencil, hold the wire with your hand. Leave a length of wire at the front and the end of the branch.
To form the tree skeleton you must twist the ends of the branches around the loops of the trunk. After you have the number of your desired branches attached to the trunk start forming the other end of the branches. Take the end of that wire and make two hills and a valley shape in the middle and slightly bend these upwards at the top of the shapes. This is so you can hang little spiders or bat decorations off your tree after it is completed.
