CSS Isn't Connecting to index.php

Hi Everybody, I have a the following file-tree:

index.php
functions.php
style.css

Within my functions.php file I have tried the following:

<?php
function add_theme_scripts() {
    wp_enqueue_style( 'style', get_stylesheet_uri() );
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_theme_scripts' );
?>

AND

<?php
function add_theme_scripts() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'style_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css');
}
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_theme_scripts' );
?>

Neither configuration is bringing the style through to my index.php. Does anybody see any issue with how I've written the functions.php and ordered the file-tree?
