How to make the 3D Christmas tree:
Step 1: Make the top layer.
1st, cut 50cm copper wire and slide four seed beads and one pearl bead on it, then thread the wire back through the seed beads and secure the beads by twining the wire ends.
2nd, slide three seed beads and one pearl onto the wire end and repeat the previous step to make another branch.
3rd, continue making the three-seed-bead branches until you get five in total. Once finished, twine all the branches together. The four-seed-bead branch is the tree top and the three-seed-bead branches are the top layer.
