Icicle Ornaments

Nothing says that winter is here better than sparkling, dangly icicles. Bring the cold indoors with these DIY icicle ornaments featured on our tabletop tinsel tree.

materials

  • 24-gauge silver wire

     

  • Needle-nose pliers

     

  • Loose glass beads and balls from vintage garland

  • Silver crinkle wire

  • Tassels (optional)

steps

  1. For each, begin with a length of 24-gauge silver wire, about 1/2 inch longer than intended ornament length. Use needle-nose pliers to twist end of wire into a small loop.

  2. String beads and balls onto wire, and make loop at opposite end of wire. String beads tightly so they do not slide.

  3. Wrap icicle with silver crinkle wire to finish. Add tassels, if desired, by feeding through the loop at the end of the ornament.
