jewelry wire sculpture

materials needed:  jewelry wire, wooden block (for base), fabric, ribbons (and any other embellishments)

Today we made a wire girl with curly hair :)
The jewelry wire is very easy to bend and manipulate!
Ella loves her wire friend!

Before beginning the project, an adult needs to drill a small hole in the wooden base and insert a large jewelry wire.  Glue it in so it remains in place.  We used plastic coated jewelry wire so it really wasn't sharp on the ends but this project is really for older preschoolers and grade schoolers.
