How to decorate mini Christmas tree with pearls and beads

It's very easy to make this Christmas decoration. Choose a little tree and the adapted blinking lights.

  • - Start by placing blinking lights.
  • - Cut stainless steel wire into pieces, 10 to 15cm (4-6in) long.
  • - Then thread iced pearls and other beads into every piece, alternating colors.
  • - Let the two ends of every wire piece free so you can tie them around the branches of the tree.
    Complete with a little red bow that hides the ends of the wire piece.
  • - Look at the enlarged image for more details.
  • - Your Christmas tree is ready!
