DIY Holiday Craft - Beaded Wire Christmas Tree Ornament

A cute and fun ornament for your tree that you can add to your holiday crafts.


  • 1. Craft wire
  • 2. Craft pliers
  • 3. Crystal beads (*Mixed with different kinds of beads)


Step -1:

  1. Take a 16 or 18 gauge craft wire and hold the wire from its end. Form a
    square shape with the wire; use the flat nose pliers to bend the wire and form the square shape. The square I made was 2 cm on all 4 sides.

Step -2:

  1. Without cutting the wire, I’m leaving about 2 cm of the wire straight after
    crossing the square part. The top side of the square plus the extra 2cm will be the bottom side of the tree. Use the flat nose pliers to bend the wire to 45 degrees towards the opposite direction of the square. Bend the wire to 45 degrees towards the same direction.

Step - 3:

  1. Keep in mind that we are forming triangle with the current wire. Keeping
    both sides of the triangle even, bend the wire towards the square part. Overlap the square part and keep extra 2 cm. Cut off extra wire.

Step - 4:

  1. Coil the extra 2 cm wire around the bottom bar of the triangle.

Step - 5:

  1. Grab a long piece of memory wire and coil it around any one of the side
    bars of the triangle. Coil the memory around the bar 3 to 4 times.

Step - 6:

  1. Insert beads into the coiled wire through its open end. Bead until the
    beads reach the opposite bar. The beading should be inside the wire triangle.
  2. After beading the first layer, coil the wire around the current bar 3 to 4
    times and then bring the wire inside the triangle again.

Step - 7:

  1. Continue to bead the memory wire and fill the triangle with beading.

Step - 8:

  1. Once the beading reaches the top of the triangle you can coil the
    remaining wire around the top end of the triangle and cut off extra wire if required.
