Pearl Tree Topper How-To
1. Beginning with the smallest bead and continuing in ascending order, string a few beads onto a pin. Repeat for each pin, making sure the pins are adorned with an equal amount of beads.
2. Use the mounting tape to attach all 8 pins to the back of a cabochon. Trim the ends of the pins, if needed. Cut a 9-inch piece of floral wire and attach it to the back. Place another cabochon, also backed with a piece of mounting tape, on top of the pins. Press firmly to ensure the cabochons are sticking together, and use wire to attach at the top of the tree.
The cabochons used in this segment can be found at M & J Trimming.
