DIY Wire Tree Ornaments

DIY Wire Tree Ornaments

Happy December! Ever since I made the DIY ear cuff, I’ve been obsessed with the copper aluminum wire I used for it. I’ve made some custom pieces for friends since then and have been toying around with other projects to share with you all. Last year I made some air dry clay ornaments, this year I was inspired by this Pinterest find. The wire tree ornaments looked super easy to make (turns out it was!) and I had all the materials on hand already (double score!).

Materials:

DIY Wire Tree Ornaments

20 Gauge Aluminum Wire | Wire Cutters | Round-Nosed Pliers | Flat-Nosed Pliers | Beads | Gold Ribbon

Note: This DIY does not require aluminum wire, you are welcome to buy any other type of metal wire.

Directions:

DIY Wire Tree Ornaments

Cut an 11” inch length of wire and gently straighten.

Use the round-nosed pliers to create a loop at the end of the wire at the base of the pliers.

Add a bead, then use the round-nosed pliers to create a half-loop about 2 cm down from the bead.

Move 3 cm down from the first half-loop and make a second half-loop in the opposite direction.

For the rest of the tree, place the round-nosed pliers down the wire so it lines up with the edge of the loop above it (as pictured above).

Add beads whenever you’d like, I like to add mine about every other tier.

After the third tier of the tree, place the pliers in the middle of bottom of the tree and make a full loop for the stump of the tree.

Cut off any excess wire. Attach the gold ribbon so you can hang them on your tree!

Like with several of my recent DIYs, I think these wire tree ornaments are perfect for last minute gifts or to make to add to your gift wrapping in addition to being used to decorate your tree with this holiday season.
