From Rebar Wire to Spring Flowers!

A simple silver plated coffee pot is transformed with the simple addition of a wire flower.
Not many supplies are needed in this project.  Some rebar wire (purchased from the hardware store), a soda bottle and some crafting beads with a large enough hole to thread onto the wire.
The purpose for the soda bottle is so you have uniform petals.  I wrap the wire eight times around the bottle.  I leave extra wire on one side to attach the petals together, and then on the other side for either a stem or to be able to wrap around something.  In this particular case, the coffee pot.  
I attach the eight petals together with the shorter end, leaving the longer piece for use to attach the beads.  
Then with the longer end I thread the beads around the center.
Once that is done, I pull the petals apart and shaped.
And there ya have it.  A wire flower!
Once the flower is done, attach the flower to the coffee pot by simply wrapping the longer end around the coffee pot.
Add some beautiful spring flowers....
...and your project is complete!  All ready for a beautiful table setting!
