Handmade Wire Wrapped Suncatcher Using Soft Flex Craft Wire And Beads
Summer is a month out, but Kristen is getting ready for the hottest season early. On Free Spirit Beading, she showed us hot to make a beaded suncatcher. Soak up the sun in style! This type of wire wrapped design is easy enough for a beginner to finish. You can work the wire with your fingers or use tools to complete your designs. An organic messy wrap is perfect for these handmade suncatchers, but if you want a little more precision, you can also use a jig board to make uniform shapes. The best thing about a craft like this is that every single suncatcher you make is a one-of-a-kind. They make great gifts and a are fun project to share with kids or grandchildren.
