While celebrating the holidays it is a good chance to make handmade gifts for your friends and family as it can show you dedicated some time especially for them. Most houses are decorated with Christmas trees during this time of the year. So, what would you say about making little trees as your gift to your beloved ones? Here you can see how to make trees with wire.
You don’t need many materials for this craft. Wire, which can be found in a variety of colors in a craft shop, is the main item you need.
This wire is very flexible and can be cut into small pieces with the help of a pair of scissors.
Make a bunch of small wires and turn them in the same direction, so that the pieces stay together. Open the edges (of the shorter side) widely, so that your creation has a base to stand.
Now you have to stretch the edges from the other side (the longer pieces) and give them the look of tree branches.
To decorate the tree you can add small decorative leaves, which are also available in a craft shop. They are sold in multi color packages or you can choose only one shade.
To secure the leaves on the branches you can use a pair of pliers to bend the edges of the branches.
You can be imaginative and fill the branches of your trees with plastic beads or even crystal. Just make sure that the beads’ holes are larger than the wire.
Alternatively, you could try adding some clay which can be painted in any desired color and can replace the beads.
You can even help your children create little trees to give to their teachers as a Christmas gift. It is an affordable idea and the receiver will appreciate the time their pupils spent on making this creation.
Another idea you can implement that I haven’t realized yet is to find a stone and place it under your tree with some glue to make your construction more secure.
To make the gesture more special, use beautiful boxes as your packaging to offer the wire trees as a gift.
Do you think your relatives would like a wire tree as a gift?
