We have shared some fun Christmas Crafts already like the DIY Card/Picture Garland and DIY Frames. Today we are sharing this super cute and easy to make DIY Wire Christmas Tree Craft. These are one of the favorite things I have made in a long time. They look great on my table and add a lot of personality without taking up a lot of space. I was able to find several of the craft supplies I used in many of the Christmas craft posts I have shared from Oriental Trading Company. For these trees, I used wire, spray paint, Christmas Cube Beads, and Christmas Jingle Bell Charms as well as some wood stars I had. I used hot glue to keep the beads and bells in place. Overall the project took me maybe 2 hours, and a good portion of that was drying time for the paint.
To start I took some wire I found out in the garage (thanks, hubby 😉 ) and I freehanded the design. I just used my hand to make the first loop (maybe a little bigger) and then with each turn I got smaller and smaller until the top was a point. I made the taller one about 12 inches and the smaller one about 6 or 7 inches high. One I had them shaped how I wanted, I took them outside (into the garage) and laid down some newspaper (or cardboard) and spray painted them. One green, and the other one gold. After they were painted I waited about 45 minutes (even though it probably didn’t take that long to dry) and I took them back inside ti add the beads and the bells. I first threaded 23 beads/bells alternating colors and styles on the large tree, and 21 on the small tree. In retrospect, I probably should have added a little more to the large one, but I really love how they turned out – so no biggie. Once you get the decorations threaded, you will use the hot glue gun, and put a small dab of glue on the wire and then slide the bead or bell over and push down for about 5 seconds. It really didn’t take long to do both trees. For the star on top, I used a wooden star that had a self-stick pad on the back. I ended up added another on to the other side, and it looks really cute!
