Materials: two wire coat hangers
About 20 twisteez wires depending on degree of detail.
Optional: beads, feathers, buttons, etc.
Step 1: Slightly fold one of the hangers to form the wings.
Bend the hook up and twist it forward to form a neck and head.
Stretch the second coat hanger out lengthwise. Shape the ‘hook end’ half of the stretched coat hanger into a barrel shape.
Bend the the other end up for the tail. Twist the hook to point forward for the head and neck.
Place the wing hanger on the body hanger (or visa versa) and bind them together with Twisteez Wires - first the neck, then the spots where the wings and body hangers cross.
Now for the fun part! Anything goes. Use brightly colored Twisteez Wire to illustrate feather patterns and other details. Decorate by attaching beads or buttons for eyes. Combine whatever materials you want with Twisteez to create your Twisteez Wired Bird!
Step 5: Hang your Twisteez bird and enjoy!
TwisteezWire is recommended for children ages 8 and over
