The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Tiny Christmas Tree Ornament:

Measure and cut the wire to a four-inch length.

Tiny Christmas Tree Ornament step 1 measure and cut wire

Hold the wire with the tip of the needle nose pliers 1 1/4 inches from one end.

Bend the shorter portion of the wire around the pliers.

Tiny Christmas Tree Ornament step 2 bend wire base

Form a rough circle around the long wire stem.

The wire should be perpendicular to the circle and roughly in the center.

Flatten the short end of the wire inside the circle.

Tiny Christmas Tree Ornament step 3 form circle for the base

Line up the sequins and beads as they should be added to the wire.

The largest sequin will be the "tree skirt".

Next is a seed bead for the tree trunk.

From there alternate the sequins and seed beads from largest to smallest.
