I didn't know what to get handsome hubby for Christmas. Last year, I got him a live Bonsai tree. This year, he needs a replacement for it  Wink. I decided to try my hand at a wire bonsai tree, based on the tutorial I found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=335045.0#axzz2oMaQVARW.

This is how it came out:



And here is my lone in-progress pic:



I couldn't figure out a way to wrap it, so I just gave it to him early. Luckily, he loves it! It's made from floral wire, seed beeds, foam, and river rocks.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

It's really pretty and it will be hard to kill Smiley. I like how you arranged it too.

Very nice wire work you have done.  I especially like the roots twisting on the rock, very smooth looking.

I love this, love this, love this!  My Dad used to make these trees out of copper wire about 25 years ago. I don't have one and he doesn't make them anymore.  Looks like I could do it myself! Thanks for sharing.
