Wire Wrapped and Beaded Picnic Utensils
 

Materials:

  • Plastic flatware
  • 18 gauge wire – 8″ per flatware piece
  • Assorted beads
  • Focal bead

Instructions:

  1. Make a small spiral in one end of the wire.

  2. Think of the smallest part of the spiral as the center of the handle. Make a bead trap by creating a sharp bend away from the center, sliding on a bead and bending the wire sharply back toward the center.

  3. Pin the spiral at the top of the handle with your thumb as you wrap the wire around the handle. Slide on a bead.

  5. Wrap the wire around the handle, slide a bead on and trap it with a sharp bend away from the center. Wrap the remaining wire into a spiral and center it.The wire will slide off easily to be reused or re-purposed. I wrapped mine around the strings on my blinds.
