Herringbone Beans Miniature Christmas Tree


Christmas is a time when everybody wants to show off some skill, be it cooking a delicious dinner or impressively decorating the front yard or house. You can also be part of this challenge and take home the prize of the neighborhood. We propose this miniature Christmas tree made out of beads. You will need:

green beads (about 80 g);
white beads (20 g);
• 0,3 – 3 reel wire;

Use the wire first as the branches of your tree. Start to make the crown by placing a twig in the center and then add 4 more around it. Begin forming the “skirt”. Make as many tiers as you need.

See the images for guideline, as you would like to give your tree a natural look. It’s recommended you put white beads at the edges and green elsewhere. Carefully twist the branches and add some more wire if needed in order to make the “trunk” of the tree. Use some plaster if you like to fashion a holder for the tree. Decorate with some candles aside, to give it that warm Christmas feeling.

    This looks great for a decoration….but is VERY DANGEROUS with the candle burning…..
    Use a battery-light perhaps?

  2. Justine says:

    Wont the flame melt or ignite the beads? That doesn’t look safe, with the flame that close to the little tree.

  3. Debug says:

    Looks good but it’s really a big risk lightning that candle when its so close to the tree.
    The degree of flammability is sky high.

  4. Nikki says:

    I would love to see a video tutorial on this! It looks awesome.

  5. Johnatan says:

    This is wonderful and it looks wonderful! 🙂
    But even though those are glass beads, I would make the candle at least a few inches further away from the beads. They won’t melt, okay.. but I’d bet they get really hot, maybe even the wire gets twisted.. I’d like to avoid that.
    Aside from that, it’s a great looking decoration!

    Better instructions would be quite helpful.

  7. elen says:

    use led light instead

  8. Carol Clark-Russell says:

    I agree with elen and JJ. Use an led light and give better, more detailed instructions.

  9. Faye says:

    I agree better not use a real flame and a great replacement is the flame-less tea light. I would love more instructions. Get more specific.. Plus a video would also help. Thank you

    I think you should correct the typo in the Subject line from BEANS to BEADS.

    Non riesco a capire come fare i rami x favore non ce un tutorial?

    To Johnatan…your reply was the nicest of all. You complimented the crafter’s skill. Then you gently critiqued the placement of the candle. The comments before yours were criticisms and yours was a critique. Well done Johnaton!

    To the designer…thank you for sharing your beautiful tree with us. Sounds like most of us viewers are in the same boat …. we don’t have the background experience that you have creating with beads and wire. Could you direct us to more information that we may build a lovely beaded tree? Thank you.
