Wire Christmas Tree Ornament


Today is Day 9 of our 12 Days of Christmas Ornament event. Time is flying, there is only three more ornament days! :(
Anyhow, we are still 34 days away from Christmas which means, we can still continue crafting and enjoying this happy time!
Which has been your favorite project, of this series, so far?  I have many favorites, but this, this, and this are some of the ones that come to my mind right now and that I really want to make.

My project today, is hands down, the easiest one I've done so far. You can have it ready in less than five minutes. I found the decorative wire at Michael's, at the end of Spring, I like its texture, some spots are chunky and some others are very tiny.... and that's what I think works the best for this tree.

The materials you'll need:
  • Decorative wire (2' for each)
  • Jingle Bell
  • Twine or ribbon (5" for each)
  • Cardboard template
  • Scissors
  • Sequins and little embellishments (optional)
  • hot glue gun (optional)

          You can find most of the materials at Michael's


Make a cardboard temple of a triangle as seen in the picture above. Cut 2' of wire and wrap it around the template. Begin at the bottom center and go all the way up.

Take the template out. The tree is going to look funny at this stage. You have to make all those turns to lay flat and go up. It is easy, the wire is very manageable.

Open the bells a bit (I used a butter knife to do this), and place it at the top of the wire. With your fingers, close the bell tightly around the wire.

Attach the twine or ribbon and you're done!

I went ahead and hot glued some sequins and more embellishments.

I told you it was going to be EASY!
