  13. These are so cute. My youngest daughter's multi-age classroom has a whole wall that is designated as Fairyland, and we are always looking for miniatures to contribute to the collection. These seems like a nice back-to-school project for us.

  19. I HEART these little trees and think they would be perfect for some of my fall decor. How long do you think they would take a novice to make? I really like the contrast between the cyrstal beads and the more wood looking beads.

    If you get a chance I would love for you to come link up your tutorial at my Pin Party.

    1. I think it would take a novice about an hour to make one. I spend the majority of my time picking out the best bead to go on next, for the branches. I completed a few practice trees and by the third one I felt very confident with the process. Thanks for the invite, I am going to link right up and post your button.

  22. Holy cow! I have seen these little things EVERYWHERE at Ren fests, and craft fairs. They are always super expensive but I just LOVE the whimsy of them. Now I think I have to make my own. Yes. I believe I must. If you have a minute, I'd love for you to link up to Sweet Sharing Monday - http://saynotsweetanne.com/2012/sweet-sharing-monday-19/

  24. These are gorgeous. If I wanted to make bigger trees - say, twice the size - could I use the same gauge wire and the same size glass chips? Or would I need to use different materials? I'm a complete beginner, but hoping to make one of these as a gift.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I tried to make a bigger tree with the same wire and beads and it looked funny, too thin if that makes any sense. I suggest giving it a try with thicker gauge aluminum wire and larger beads. I think aluminum because it is easier to bend. I have seen 16 or 18 gauge wire that looks thick enough. I suggest making a few larger test trees without beads and see how they turn out. Then you can test beads out to see if they will work. The wire is not usually very expensive (all less than $3 a spool at Joanns) so you should be able to make practice trees without spending too much money.
