2 Comments

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.

  2. Cut a long, but manageable length of 28g wire and twist around the galvanized wire , starting at the loop and working down about 1" to make a branch.

  3. Slide 4 beads of assorted sizes onto the wire. Create a 3" - 4" loop using 6" - 8" of wire with the beads captured in the loop, continue to wind around the galvanized base wire.

  5. Continue twisting the wire around the base and make a new branch every 1/4" - 1/2" until you run out of wire.

I'm totally confused!

Yes a bit time consuming but the results are so well worth it. I use it for centerpieces, wreaths, candles results are beautiful.
