My pride and joy… filled with labor and love (and a few blisters XD) and lemme tell ya its BIG its the biggest tree I have ever made to date… used more wire than ever…
*Each branch end has a piece of 22 gauge green colored floral wire bend in half and then wrapped with the copper wire.
*Wire used: 26 gauge copper enamel & 22 gauge green steel floral wire (for leaves)
*Total Height: 15.75 inches
*Height of Tree 9.5 inches
*Amount of wire used… unknown but a lot
*Time: way to effing long
*I have also added little animals to the tree; 2 butterflies each with one smaller free hanging butterflies attached, a silver snake, a silver frog, 2 silver lizards, a birds nest with colored fresh water pearls as eggs, and a silver dragon fly.
*The base is a ceramic (I think) bowl filled with foam to create a hill and covered with moss.. I did paint the moss with a little of glitter paint to give it a simulated “wet” look as if the dew is shimmering in the sun
