Beaded Autumn Tree
ITEM # 3165880P24

DESCRIPTION +

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 6/0 glass seed beads: Coral, Gold, Brown & Green shades
  • 8mm faux amber beads
  • 20-gauge brown wire
  • 16-gauge copper wire
  • Heavy rock with flat base
  • Round nose pliers
  • Wire cutters

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Start by cutting multiple lengths of brown and gunmetal wire, each 36" long. The number will vary depending on the size of the rock and the overall desired size of the tree. Blending the brown and copper shades of wire will give it more of an organic “tree bark” look.
  2. Take a few pieces of wire and lay them out on a work table. Place the rock directly in the middle on top of them, and pull both side of the wire up the rock so they meet in the middle. Keep these wires as tight to the rock and twist. Continue adding wires in this manner, anchoring them to the rock in different directions. Our trunk ended up being about 3" tall before splitting out into smaller branches.
  3. Once a strong base has been established, start separating the trunk wires into three large branches – clumps of several wires that are twisted together going off in different directions. Each branch then separates into 2-3 sub-branches, then into individual one-wire branches.
  4. Start to add beads, sliding on a random mixture of different 6/0 seed beads in Autumn colors.
  5. To finish each beaded branch, curl the ends of the wire back onto itself to form a loop locking the beads in place.
