Haven’t been crafting or posting for a long time so thought of posting something quick, easy and fun! Well, making birds nest charms or pendant from wire isn’t anything new but here’s a super easy step-by-step guide for beginners on how to make birds nest pendant or charm using craft wire. 

Check out the list of supplies and follow the easy instructions to make one! 

Supplies:

  • Craft wire – 18 gauge
  • Round beads – medium size
  • Craft pliers – cutting, looping and flat nose

Instructions:

birds-nest-1 Cut a long piece of wire, mine was 24 cm long. Hold the wire from an end without cutting the wire from the bundle. Insert 3 beads into the wire. Bring the beads to the center of the wire.

birds-nest-2 Start wrapping the wire from both sides around the beads. After you’re done wrapping take and tuck the wire behind. Take a small piece of wire and wrap the wire nest from inside out 3 or 4 times (see picture).

Take another small piece of wire and coil the wire nest from inside out 3 or 4 times.  I coiled the nest 3 times keeping even gap between all 3 coils. Tuck remaining wire behind the pendant.
