Christmas Serving Utensils Instructions Designed by Artbeads
Make these fun serving utensils as a gift or use them on your own holiday table!
Step one: Cut approximately five feet of 20 gauge burgundy artistic wire. Create a spiral in one end of the wire. To learn how to make a wire spiral, please see the Handy Tips section of the Learning Center. Hold the spiral tightly to the metal of the utensil on the serving end. Wrap the wire around the utensil, each time you come to the top, add a furnace glass bead from the Christmas mix. Alternate colors as you go.
Step two: When you reach the end, spiral the remaining wire through the hole of the handle, or if your utensils do not have holes, just make another wrapped spiral at the end. We added charms to the ends of our utensils to give them and extra touch of Christmas.
