Step 1: Making the Swing:
For making this swing I used 14 gauge wire.So, first I started
with making the hook. So, I took my one lipstick and using that I bend the wire like hook and then I used one water bottle and bend the wire like half arch and then wire should straight till 4 inch then using pillars bend and after 4.5 inches again bend to upside and go straight till 4 inches and make the arch again using water bottle. Then cut the wire and join it to the hook neck making a loop and tight it using pillars. Now swing is ready as you can see in the pic.
Step 2: Making Flowers:
I used different color foam sheets making the flower. So first I draw the flower and cut it.
Then Using hot iron I made flower little curly. I used 24 gauge wire and cut it into 3.5 inches then I took one bead and put into the wire and make a loop and tight it. Then I put that wire into the middle of the flower. And using very small amount of glue to secure it. Then I wrap the wire using floral tape.
Using the same process I made all the flowers.
Step 3: Wrapping the Swing With Flowers and Beads:
So, now we will wrap the swing. First I started wrap with the hook area using flowers. Both side arches area I wrap with flowers and the lower portion of the swing 2 inch I wrap with beads. And the middle of the beads I used ladybug button both side.
So we are done and our hummingbird swing is ready.
