    Can I buy this wire at a hardware store? How much wire is on the spool? This is such a stunning tree! I want to make one as a gift for a coworker. Thank you for sharing this beautiful idea.

    I often have seen wire trees but never a pine. This is the best wire tree I have seen. Thank you for sharing!

    Question 1 year ago on Introduction

    Do you mean a circumference of 22"?? Radius of 22" would be huge. Also how much wire are you using?

    Circumference is the right word. I have made a mistake. Thank you for figure it out. I did not measure the length of wire because the wire is too long and quite thin.
