Directions

 

Take about 3 inches of 24 gauge wire and coil the end, string on about 2 inches of seed beads. Wrap the beaded wire around the tip of the pencil to create a cone shaped coil then set on the side. Take the head pin and string on a cube, 2 x 10mm margaritas, 2 x 8mm margaritas, 2 x 6mm margaritas. Use your fingers to wrap the beaded coil around the tree like a garland and wrap the end of the wire onto the head pin right above the last margarita, trim off the tail of the 24 gauge wire. String on the 4mm bicone then wire wrap to the eyeglass holder. Adjust your garland as needed.
