Introduction: Make Beaded Hair Sticks Out of Aluminum Wire

This DIY beaded hair stick is mainly made up of aluminum wires and seed beads. Its structure is very simple. I use aluminum wires to wrap its main frame. The several seed beads add a touch of sparkly. Now, come with me to learn how to make beaded hair sticks!

Step 1: Materials Needed in DIY Beaded Hair Sticks:

Step 2: Wrap the Frame of the Beaded Hair Sticks

1st, cut about 30cm aluminum wire, make a loop at one end of the wire;

2nd, at the distance of 0.5cm from the first loop, rotate the wire clockwise 60 degrees angle to form a loop, then rotate the wire anticlockwise 60 degrees angle to form a loop, far about 1cm from the second loop, this is the basic pattern of the frame as pictures show;

3rd, repeat the basic pattern in the 2nd four or five times, make a loop at this end.

Step 3: Add Beads to the Frame of Hair Sticks

1st, cut about 80cm 0.3mm copper wire, wrap it several turns around aluminum wire at one end, then slide a seed bead onto the wire, wrap the copper wire around aluminum wire again;

2nd, repeat the process in 1st in this step until the wire wrapped frame is filled with seed beads, then cut the extra copper wire.

Step 4: Finish DIY Beaded Hair Sticks

1st, cut about 12cm aluminum wire, make a loop far about 3cm from one end, wrap the 3cm aluminum wire around the longer wire several turns;

2nd, pinch the end of the wrapped wire, so that it will not prick you.

Step 5: Here Is the Final Look of the DIY Beaded Hair Sticks:
