Instructions

  1. Begin by cutting a piece of wire about 12 inches. You will be cutting off the excess at the end, so it's ok to have too much. You can do this without cutting the wire and leave it attached to the spool. Wire Words
  2. Next, start shaping the letters of your desired word. I did the shaping with my fingers and finger nails, but you could use the wire tool, too if you preferred. Wire Words Wire Words Wire Words Wire Words
  3. Trim the excess wire from the words. Wire Words
  4. Now thread on a few beads. You will have to move the wire a bit to get the bead on, but you can just move it back and reshape it. Wire Words Wire Words
