Whimsy Tree Garland

I wanted to give some sparkle to my apple tree and thought of this project!
You can go to Michael's and get the mirrors there. I chose round ones: 25 in a  pack, 1 inch.
I also used round beads found at Michael's, but you can choose any size or color.
I used monofilament fishing line.
 I beaded 8 beads then glue gunned 
2 round mirrors together and  
started the pattern again.
You can make it as long as you would like. 
I made mine 5 feet long. 
I love how it looks draped around 
my apple tree with it's new fruit.
Every tree needs a little whimsy.
