Beach Glass Garland

I saw this at a store in Newport and it was so easy to do and its a great gift idea. you only need a couple of things readily available at your local beach or Michael’s Craft Store.
I made these for Christmas!
What You Need:
Needle nose pliers (technically mine are not needle nose but they are close)
20 pieces of Beach Glass
20 gauge wire (8 yd) or more
Thats it!

What you do:
start by winding the wire around the needle nose pliers 3 or 4 times to have a starting point that is pretty and not just going to poke into something.
Then about every 4 inches or so wrap the wire around the glass, make sure to go around  a few times and then cross over and go the other way so the glass doesn’t just fall right out.
in between each use the pliers again to make a little swirl by simply wrapping the wire around the pliers and pulling apart, gently so it looks pretty.
Continue until you are out of wire or glass and make one final swirl at the end. At Christmas I put little hand made tags that said “beach glass garland” So simple!!
