Copper Tree - Start to Finish
I like to get various electrical wires, strip them down to the copper and twist them into shapes - the thicker gauges forming the trunk and finer and finer gauges for the branches. The finer gauge can be twisted onto the heavier and shaped like a fish skeleton similar to tree branches. Look at the skeletal layout of a leaf and you'll notice it's similar in shape to the tree in a lot of cases. Make the base heavier to balance the tree. Then you need a good fixative that is not really runny. If you have twisted the copper together it makes for better purchase and for interesting knots in the tree.
