Wire Holiday Decor Trees

I just love adding fun, crafty and DIY touches to decor, and these Wire Holiday Trees are no exception!  I love the modern flair they have, while still being fun and classy holiday decor.  And they’re way easy to make when using the right tools!

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Cone (in desired size)
  • 24 gauge Craft Wire (in desired color)

The foam cone is the secret tool to making this project so quick and easy – it’s the perfect shape and sturdy material to form your wire around.

Instructions:

Decide how tall you want your tree to be and start wrapping the wire at that height around the cone.  For example, for a smaller wire tree, I started half-way up the foam cone.  As you wrap you’ll want to hold the wire in place so it doesn’t unravel.  Eventually it will hold itself in place by overlapping the wire as you wrap.

Keep wrapping…

…and wrapping, until the wire is pretty dense.  Having more wire helps the tree hold it’s shape.

Then carefully slide the wire off the foam cone by pushing the wire up and off from the bottom.

And voila!  You’ll be able to use the foam cone again and again for all the trees that you would like to make.

You can make them in a variety of sizes and colors.  How fun would making several of these be and lining them on a mantle for a holiday forest display?
