Picture of Metal Tree
I have been cleaning out my shop, and I found this old sculpture that I made. I decided to share it with the instructables community because I like the sculpture and I haven't seen anything like this. It is fairly easy to make, all you need is some wire and needle-nose pliers.

Step 1: Tools and Materials

Incredible. What will I discover next on instructables? This is real art with intention to inspire. I'm afraid I made one but someone thought it was trash scrap and tossed it away into the dumpster. Hurt my feelings so I won't do another.

Nice, I like the way you used two different colours of wire, the fruit is pretty cool too.
