Wire Word Art

If you have a favorite quote or a motto that you live by, you can turn it into wall art. Prepare your wire, pliers, and a template of the phrase you want to use. Bend and twist the wire according to the letters you need. Use tape to keep it in shape and depending on the look you have in mind, you can also cover the wires in colorful yarn. Once you're done, see how you can put it on display. You can hang them up on hooks or you can use strong adhesives, too.
