First you take the nails and place one over the other in a cross pattern. Take the wire and wrap it around the center of the cross so that the nails stay snug and in place. Like this.

Once you have the nails secured in your cross pattern. Start at the top of the longest nail and wrap wire several times around the upper part of the nail. Once you have it wrapped, then you can start threading your beads onto the wire. Continue wrapping until the whole cross if covered. Like this

After this is done, you either leave it like it is or you can add a ribbon bow and flower on it like I did. We will be using these for favors at Mikaela’s quinceanera in March.
