How great is this?! I was thumbing through a 2005 issue of Woman's Day and ran across this project. They used 16 gauge wire (dark annealed steel) for the body of the project and 22 gauge wire to attach the branches and curlicues. Then they used Aleene's 7800 adhesive just to "firm it all up" and give it stability.

I would also mix in some small letterpress tags and maybe a handmade ornament or two. Or a small watercolored tag. Or handmade tags. Or do a swap with online friends for things just the right size. (in my spare time, of course. *snort*) Or... or... or...

If you make one please be sure to send me a link! I'd love to see it!
