A real quick post on a craft for under $20.00.
I made these icicles years ago for my tree and various places throughout the house.
I used from Michaels craft wire; 20 oz silver.
I bent in one end to hold the beads in place as I strung them on the wire.
I also purchased a bead set from Michaels but Wal Mart and other craft stores carry them.
Simply; I strung the beads in a pattern on the wire and bent the top into a curve.
Simple and easy peasy.
