By:

This is a very easy, but a bit time consuming Holiday project from The Bead Studio that makes a cute decoration for a package, a tree or a window.

Beaded Holiday Garland

Materials:

  • 9' - 19g galvanized steel wire -cut in half (available at the hardware store)
  • Roll of 28g Craft Wire
  • 400-500 Acrylic Faceted Beads (Assorted sizes - 4,6, & 8mm)

Instructions:

  1. Take two ends of the galvanized wire and twist to create a 1/2" - 1" loop.
