Introduction: Make a Wire Tree Sculpture!

About: I make science and how to videos on the interwebs. youtube- youtube.com/mist8k

In this video I'm going to show you how to make a decorative wire tree sculpture using wire and beads.


What you need-

Wire-
I used round 85 strands of  28 gauge silver cut wire. Each piece was 18 cm long. 
You can also use copper or aluminium wire and vary the length depending how big you want the tree.

Beads-
I used assorted beads from my local crafts shop.

Base-
I used a glass candle holder for my tree to stand in. I'm sure a small dish or container would also do the trick.

Stones-
I used a bunch of small stones I found in my garden bed. You could also use pebbles/ glass beads etc

Tools-
Pliers and glue

    nice work

    This looks so cool! It might be fun to try putting beads in the "roots" and then using resin in the base so you can see the root system :)
