Twisteezwire Love

Have I mentioned how much I love Twisteezwire?! (Yes. Twice.)  They sent me a bunch more of their wires (thank you!) so I've been playing. With Valentine's Day approaching, I thought it would be fun to make some festive decor. 

I started with one red Twisteezwire and some clear beads. I cut the wire into thirds and bent each to form a heart, twisting one end around the other to secure it. I threaded three beads on the longer end, then formed a small loop to keep them in place.


I repeated those steps to make two more hearts. I took a second piece of red Twisteezwire and used it to form a cursive 'Love.' After some trial and error, I discovered that the easiest way to do that was to write the word on a piece of paper, place the wire on the paper, and guide it into position. I added a bead when I got to the O and then kept going. When the word was complete, I added three beads to each end and held them in place with tiny loops. 


With the four components done, I used monofilament to hang them together like a mobile. Check it out!


The most challenging part of the whole thing was tying the darn monofilament where I wanted it. Other than that, the project was quite easy and definitely kid-friendly. I'm really happy with it.
