Materials
Christmas Tree Bead Wire Handle
11/64" FO - lashing
1/4" FF - weavers & holding row
1/4" FF - dyed red & green
3/8" FO - rims
1/2" FF - spokes & weavers
3/4" FF - 1 spoke
Seagrass

Cut 1 spoke from 3/4" FF 20" long, and 2 spokes from 1/2" FF each 20" long. Then cut 9 spokes from 1/2" FF each 14" long. Soak briefly and mark the center of a few spokes. Lay the 3 long spokes (20" long ones) horizontal with the 3/4" FF spoke in the middle. Weave in vertically 9 spokes starting with the center spoke and weaver over the first spoke (you will be under the wide spoke.) Base measures 8 1/4" X 2 1/4". Weave a "holding row" of 1/4" FF, mitering the corners.

Upset the spokes and weave the following rows of start & stop:

1 row 1/2" FF
1 row 1/4" FF green
1 row 1/4" FF red
6 rows 1/4" FF natural
1 row 1/4" FF red
1 row 1/4" FF green
2 rows 1/4" FF natural

Pack well. Cut and tuck spokes - don't forget to put the eyelets on the center spoke. Rim with 3/8" FO, seagrass between rims, and lash with 11/64" FO. Attach the wire handle and stain if you choose. I hot glued on some greenery and red berries for a more "festive look".
