1. Divide the wire into five 15cm and two 10cm lengths.
2. Take one 15cm section of wire and fold it approximately half way making one section of wire 3cm longer than the other. Place the hoop so it sits in the fold. Now twist the longer section of wire around the hoop three times to secure the wire (Pic 2a). Repeat this step to attach the other four 15cm section of wire (Pic 2b).
3. Create the trunk by bringing all the wire together secure by twisting twice (Pic 3).
4. Take one 10cm section of wire. Create a 2cm tail and secure the wire to the top side right of the hoop by wrapping the tail around (Pic 4a). Thread the top loop of the charm on the open end of wire (Pic 4b). Using your thumb secure the charm in position. The charms needs to sit on the branch with the top loop of the charm touching the side of the hoop. Secure the charm by wrapping the wire twice through the top loop of the charm and the hoop. Finish by securing to the hoop by wrapping the end of the wire to the frame. Trim if need to finish the wire flushed.
5. To secure the charm to the branch take one section of wire from the twisted wire of the trunk and thread it through the bottom branch of the charm (Pic 5a). Rejoin the wire with the other wires and twist together. The end of the trunk should be sitting a little bit under half way
6. Now separate the wire sitting and spreading them out so the wire are grouped in their original five groups of two.
7. Now take the bottom three groups of two (six wires) and twist them together for 0.5-1cm*. Now take the top two groups of two (four wires) and twist to together 0.5-1cm* (Pic 7). *Vary the size for each group.
8. Re-spread the branches so they sit in their original five groups of two wires. Now twist each group together for approx 0.5 to 1cm. Vary the size of the twist for each group (Pic 8).
9. Spread the 10 sections of wire out until your happy with the shape of the tree. Starting with the top section of wire *thread some beads, so the bead sit comfortable under the hoop and secure the excess wire by wrapping around the edge of the hoop. Trim if need to finish the wire flushed (Pic 9a).** Repeat from * to ** with the other nine sections of wire (Pic 9b).
10. Take the last 10cm section of wire. Create a 2cm tail and secure the wire to the top of the hoop by wrapping the tail around. Take the bead hanger and thread on the open end of the wire when you are happy with the position secure it to the hoop by wrapping the wire twice through the top loop of the charm and the hoop. Finish by securing to the hoop by wrapping the end of the wire to the frame. Trim if need to finish the wire flushed.
