Mother's Day Brooch

Mother’s Day Family Tree Brooch

This project was a little time consuming but really fun to do.  I took some plastic-coated wire twist ties (the kind that hold toys into their packaging just to make parents crazy!) and stripped the plastic off with some scissors (the time consuming part).  I cut five 3” pieces and left one long piece to wrap around the branches.  Next I “borrowed” some beads from one of my girl’s many costume necklaces.  Using needle-nosed pliers, I bent the wire into small circles and holders for the beads.  Last, I hot-glued the branches to a brooch pin and wrapped the long wire around the bottom.

This is a nice alternative to birthstone rings and necklaces.
