Wire Bead Cross

Show faith, hope and love with a beautiful wood bead and wire cross!



Step 1. Gather your supplies.

Step 2.

Cut a 2 foot piece of 20g gold craft wire and fold in half.

Step 3.

String on 13 beads. We used 2 small round ones on each end, with the word “FAITH” in the middle and round beads in between each letter. 

Make sure the beads are centered on the wire and twist the two ends of the wire together, to form the top of the cross.

Step 4.

 For each side you will need 11 beads. We did the same pattern as the first, but spelled “LOVE” and “HOPE”.

Step 5.

String 6 beads on one half and 7 beads on the other half of the remaining wire. Using jewelry pliers, twist the two ends of wire together.

Step 6.

Cut off any excess wire and form the bottom of the cross to match the top!
