20 gauge wire
24 gauge wire
Silver spacer beads
Long nose needle pliers
The wire can be purchased in the bead section of most craft stores.
Cut a 2" and 3" piece of 20 gauge wire.
Cut a 4" piece of 24 gauge wire and wrap it around the area were the pieces meet to make the cross. Twist the wire around 3 or 4 times. Trim the ends and twist around withe the needle nose pliers.
Start beading with beads and spacers. Cut the wire ends so they are 1/4" long and using the needle nose pliers twist into a small loop.
Cut a 12" piece of 24 gauge wire. Start winding the wire around the beads top to bottom and side to side. This step really stabilizes the cross.
These can be used to make Christmas ornaments, bookmarks and necklaces. You can make the crosses smaller or larger - whatever you prefer.
I am planning on using these on a cake or a cupcakes.
