We love this versatile wine marker project! Want to skip the cube "tree trunks"? -- Just add a 4th row (with a 12mm #3700) to the tree instead. If one color of 3mm gold bicone ("star") is unavailable, pick another shade of gold, silver, red... anything that strikes your fancy and would look pretty on top of a tree! Mix & match colors of "beads". #3700 margarita If you love the tree idea, but want to use different beads for the hoop itself, are a colorful, inexpensive glass bead option. E beads
