Stacked Ornaments Project and Making A Simple Wire Loop


Here's the how to for these fun stacked ornaments a.k.a. whimsical icicles. This would be a fun project to make with the kids.

Supplies Needed:

An Assortment of Beads
20 Gauge Craft Wire
18 Gauge Craft Wire

Instructions:

1. Make a spiral at the end of the 20 gauge wire.

2. Start stacking beads from smallest to largest on the wire until you are happy with your ornament.

3. Make a simple wire loop (see below) just above the last bead. Trim any excess wire.

4. Using the 18 gauge craft wire make an ornament hook (see below).



You can pin it or print these tutorials for later reference.



Enjoy!
