Christmas decoration "Fir-tree"

The traditional New Year's Eve event has always been the decoration of the Christmas tree. What could be more interesting and more pleasant than making your own Christmas tree toys? In this master class, the Wire Wrap technique is used.
For work you will need the following materials and tools:
  • Copper or aluminum wire, length - 40 cm., Thickness - 1.5 mm. In order to get copper or aluminum wire, you can take the wires and remove the insulation from them.
  • Thin wire for beadwork, thickness - 0.3 mm (sold in stores for needlework).
  • Beads of green shades.
  • Bright beads (will be used to imitate Christmas balls).
  • Round-nosed pliers.
  • Nippers
  • Hammer and anvil (instead of the anvil, you can use, for example, a metal dumbbell).

To begin with, we take a thick wire with round pliers at the very tip and bend it to obtain an eyelet.

Next, we begin to bend the wire in such a way as to produce a semblance of a tortuous "snake". In addition, each subsequent coil should be several millimeters longer than the previous one.

Now we continue to bend the wire in the same way.It will be more convenient to bend the wire with round pliers, clamping it at the intended points of the bend. We try to make the distance between the coils approximately the same.

It should be such a construction. At the end of the wire again make a loop.

This will be the basis for the future "Christmas tree". Next, we lay the foundation on the anvil and beat the wire with the hammer in the places of the fold, in the resulting construction.

This process is necessary so that the basis of the “Christmas tree” could lie in the same plane and to give elegance to the turns.

After all this, we begin to decorate the base of the decoration. For this purpose, you need to take a thin wire for beading. On the top loop you can attach, for example a star or just a beautiful bead. We thread a thin wire in the hole and tie a star or a bead to the top loop.

Then we go down below and begin to wrap a thick wire thin, every 3-4 turns, string one green bead one by one and tie it to the base of a thick wire.

We reach the end of the coil and thread a larger, bright bead (to imitate Christmas balls) on a thin wire and in the same way we wind it to the base from one coil to another.

Next, following this technology, we continue to decorate the base to the very end of the wire.
