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;
