DIY Christmas - Soft Flex Craft Wire Angel Ornament Made On The WigJig

6:00 AM


I really love this little lady. She is made using two gauges of Soft Flex craft wire, 18 and 26 gauge.


I made the wire form using a WigJig Olympus-Lite


The shape is a little wonky when it comes off of the jig. But the 26g wire pulls it all together. You just simply wrap it around the middle several times.


See! She looks great. You can add a hook, stop here and call it good.  Or, you can make it extra special and add beads! I used size 11/0 Miyuki seed beads in Gold Bronze Matte.


Again, not too much to explain here. You wrap the wire around the wire form, add beads and wrap the wire again. Rinse and repeat!


Last, but not least, I added a Mocha colored Swarovksi crystal bead as the angel head. She turned out great!

I can't wait to give some of these little babies out as Christmas gifts. This type of project is a great fit for co-workers, friends at church or extended family. Remember, you can make all sorts of helpful shapes on a WigJig, not just angels!
