Here’s a quick and easy tree trim that creates a satisfying result from a few simple supplies.
What You Will Need:
- Pipe Cleaners (to match colour of beads)
- 18 Pony Beads
- Matching ribbon
You can makes dozens of these little beaded wreaths in a very short time. Simply strand the beads onto a pipe cleaner stem. The ornaments shown here are small ornaments, but you can make them as large as you like. They would also be easy to incorporate into any color scheme, or you could mix and match the colors for a more eclectic look.
To secure the beads in place, simply twist the two ends of the pipe cleaner together. To cover the area where you have twisted the pipe cleaner, just tie a shoe lace bow around the pipe cleaner.
If you want hangers for these (I just placed the center of the wreath onto a branch stem), you can create one, but do this before you wrap your bow around. Tie a hanger around the exposed pipe cleaner area and then tie your bow on top of the hanger.
