Wire Christmas Tree Decoration

Just thought I’d share a decoration I made for my Christmas tree

I used a wire-jig to create the base of the tree in 0.6mm silver plated wire and then used a thinner wire to wrap around the outside of the tree, adding small jingle bells as I went.  I really love the silver wire against the green of my tree.

Each year I try to make at least one decoration for the tree.  My aim is to one year have the whole tree decorated in homemade things.  Just for fun, here are a few of the handmade things already on my tree.

And a couple made by my children when they were younger:

Anyone already got a completely homemade tree?
