The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Tiny Christmas Tree Ornament:
Measure and cut the wire to a four-inch length.
Hold the wire with the tip of the needle nose pliers 1 1/4 inches from one end.
Bend the shorter portion of the wire around the pliers.
Form a rough circle around the long wire stem. The wire should be perpendicular to the circle and roughly in the center.
Flatten the short end of the wire inside the circle.
Line up the sequins and beads as they should be added to the wire.
The largest sequin will be the "tree skirt".
Next is a seed bead for the tree trunk.
From there alternate the sequins and seed beads from largest to smallest.
Add the beads and sequins to the wire.
Use the tip of the needle nose pliers to make a small curl in the end of the wire.
Make a hook in the top of the wire.
The Tiny Christmas Tree Ornament is ready to sparkle among the decorations.
