Tabletop Trees: Icicles


String loose glass beads and balls from vintage garlands into glittering, dangling ornaments.


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

  2. Step 2

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