9. With the drill clamp the eye of the wire in the chuck of the drill. Slowly begin to wind the wire up with the drill. The tree will began in to take shape the more you wind it up. When the wire is completely wounded up the twine will be locked in between the wire. When the tree is completed wind up and remove from the chuck of the drill and the vice.
