Beaded Wire Cross

Here's a fun and easy craft...

All you need is a mix of fun beads, some beading wire, a couple of markers/pencils/dow rods or any thing that shape will do!

Start by making a cross with the markers or pencils. Depending on how big you want the cross is how you decide which to use. The one below was made with crayola markers.

Wrap some wire around the center of the cross to secure it, but not too tight because eventually you will want to remove them.
Once the middle is secure, just wrap wire around the rest of it. until you have a good base. Once you have a good foundation, you can begin just adding beads as you wrap.

Once your cross looks like you want it to, push the markers out of the holes at the top and there you have it. In some cases you could leave them, as long as it can't be seen through the wire.

Use left over wire to make a hanger. Now that I look at it, I should probably use a ribbon to hang it- wouldn't that be pretty!

This is a great way to use all those left over beads from various projects!
