Table Christmas trees made of wire
There are several options for implementing this idea..
Before making a wire tree with your own hands, you need to stock up on the necessary tools:
- a coil of wire (the length depends on the size of the structure);
Next, build a structure, depending on the desired result.
Take the cone-shaped object. Instead, you can use paper, only you will need to put the filling inside. Then the paper sheet will not bend and it will be easy to work on creating a Christmas tree..
Coil the wire starting at the wider part of the cone. Leave 3 to 4 cm of wire at the top for the loop and bite through it. The width between the turns can be whatever you like. After the top is finished, the cone is removed. The product must be stabilized so that it does not fall off the table in the future..
The thickness of the wire for creating a New Year’s decoration is not critical..
You can decorate the Christmas tree in interesting ways:
- Tinsel. Each turn is wrapped in a shiny decoration, right up to the top.
- Garland on the same principle.
- Pass the wire along the length of the dense cord and make a cone after.
- Decorative items. Tie bows, small toys, artificial berries.
- Attach a bump or star to the top.
This Christmas tree looks very neat. Can be made in any size and placed in the corner of the desktop to cheer up.
Take a wire and wind it in tight rings, gradually decreasing the amplitude.
Be sure to hold the winding tightly so that it does not unwind in the process and does not move to the side.
This should result in a stack of wire rings with the smallest diameter at the top. Grasp the bottom 2 rings and pull the tree out by hooking the top ring with your finger. There is no need to stretch the product too much, you should get a light multi-layer construction.
For decorative purposes, you can fix it on a stand and add some greenery and flowers at the base. Sprinkle with artificial snow from a spray can, plant figurines of animals.
