Beaded Wired Tree Art


  • 14 gauge wire - 10" or more
  • 22 gauge wire - a roll of it
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters
  • Chain nose pliers
  • Hot glue
  • Frame - optional
  • Charms to hang on the tree - optional


  1. Cut 2 pieces of 4' 14 gauge wire and fold in half. Fold a bent wire 2" from the bend and bend in the opposite direction on both sides of the bend.
  2. Pinch the two folded parts and twist. These will be roots. Repeat with the other 4" wire.
  3. Cut a 2' piece of the 14 gauge wire and bend one end, twisting to make a 5th root.
  4. Holding the roots together, begin twisting the tree truck wires together. Add as many extra wires as desired to add bulk to your trunk.
  5. Decide where the branches will open up and separate them.
  6. Cut 20 or more 2" pieces of 22 gauge wire and fold them in half. Twist each for added strength and thickness.
  7. Begin wrapping the smaller wires around the trunk, working upward and around the branches until you have the look you want.
  8. To add charms, curl the ends of the branches, slide the charm on and secure by completing the curl.
  9. To add into a frame make sure the roots and branches have a flattened back side.
  10. Make sure there are plenty of contact points between the frame, backing and tree for the glue to create a good bond.

I agree that the measurements are off but also when do you add the Green Heart Bead? Can't wait to make this but am waiting for an update on measurements. Thanks.

I would like to make this but it seems like the measurements are off on the wire lengths. Supplies indicate you only need 10 inches (") of 14 gauge wire, but then in the instructions it is referring to Feet of 14 gauge wire. Seems like the reverse occurs with the 22 gauge wire. Can you please check the measurements and correct as necessary? Thanks much!
