It's a great way to brighten up any space, is easy and inexpensive to make and is a great gift for friends and family.
The version featured here is the "Tree of Life" , and with some practice only takes about an hour to make!
Step 1: Tools and Materials
Jewelry style wire, one a little thicker to form the outside hoop, one a little thinner, which the beads can be strung upon...in assorted colors if you like.
A crystal globe with a hole in it to string it up
Basic jewelry pliers; pinch, cut, etc.
Step 2: Getting Started
(I used one of the small tins I use to keep beads in.)
Twist the end to form a small loop that will be the tie point for hanging it.
Next, cut eight pieces of wire, each with a length about 3 times the diameter of the hoop.
These will become the trunk and branches of the tree.
Step 3: Forming the Tree
These form the roots of the tree.
Then they are twisted together into a central trunk, and then separate again to form the branches of the tree.
Step 4: Making Jeweled Branches
Step 5: Add the Rainbow Maker & Finished!
Attach a piece of string to the loop and it's ready to hang!
