* Assortment of beads
* Piece of wire
* Wire cutters
Note: If you have beads with wider holes, you can use a pipe cleaner instead of the wire.
1. Thread the first bead on and wrap the wire around that bead to create a "stop" so the beads won't fall off.
2. Thread the other beads onto the wire in whatever pattern you desire.
3. When you have enough beads, twist the wire into a curved shape.
4. Bend the wire into a loop and cut any excess wire (an adult should cut the wire).
Hang from your tree, mantel or anywhere in your house.
