Make an eye-catching accent piece out of twisted wire and glass stones. Here's how to do it:



Materials and Tools:

14- or 16-gauge silver armature wire
silicone adhesive
blue and red round polished glass stones


1. Cut the armature wire in the following lengths: two 24-inch pieces for the front and back, two 20-inch pieces long for the sides and a 16-inch piece for the bottom.

2. Twist, bend and shape the wires with pliers to make the side pieces, a bottom and a front and back.

3. Form the napkin holder by twisting 14-gauge wire on the corners to hold the five wire pieces together.

4. Glue on the glass stones over the swirled wire designs using silicone adhesive.
