Wire Trees with Shrinky Dink Leaves

I have oodles and oodles of wire, and what better use to put it to than to make some trees?! The twisting is kind of repetitive and theraputic, and it's kind of hard to mess it up!
I drew and cut out a bunch of these little leaves on shrink plastic while I was stuck in bed. So I made loops at the end of each little branch and glued on the leaves with hot glue. I thought about punching a hole through the leaves before shrinking, to make a sort of bead, but decided against it.
Here's another tree I made a little while back with just crazy random loopies at the end od each branch.
