Wire Tree

While figuring out my table display for the Urban craft Market I got inspired to make this tree.  I love trees and all that they represent; strength, wisdom, and healing.

First I created the shape of my tree using jewelry wire.

I then covered the branches with wool roving.  This part was difficult as the wool kept getting snagged into the wire.  With much patience and hope that it would be successful I persevered. 

My perseverance payed off because I really like the results.  To emulate fall colours I spread coloured mohair across the branches.
