A cute little wire bird
This was my first ever attempt at this, and I'm very new to wire art so please excuse the fact that is doesn't look amazing. However, I can teach you how to do it so that you can make nicer ones :)

I don't know what gauge the wire I used for the outline is, because it didn't say on the packaging. Use your own judgment as to what you think will look good.

  • How to make a wire model. Wire Bird - Step 1
    Step 1

    Bend the wire into the shape of a bird. I placed it onto a picture of a bird to get this right

  • Step 2

    Gauge 24-28 wire is suitable for this bit.
    Starting at the tail, wrap your thinner wire round the bird.

  • Step 3

    Part way through, I discovered it was easier and tidier to wrap in a figure of 8, wrapping the wire round the frame once each time to stop the wire moving about. (I hope that made sense)

  • Step 4

    When you get to the head, add a smallish bead for an eye and continue wrapping until you run out of room.

  • Step 5

    Wrap the end of the wire round the frame to secure it :)
