Unravel wire from a copper pot scrubber

I love the flat wire from a copper pot scrubber. Apart from it being really, really inexpensive, it is also wonderful to use. The flat wire is great for wrapping foliage and moss. It also makes the nicest wire curls (see detailed Tutorial below) and is by far the best for making beaded wire (see Tutorial below.) The wire can be used as a ribbon or loosely dangled.

The pot scrubber is basically a knitted wire tube, rolled up. Gently unroll the tube. Tug the end piece and start to unravel. I find it easier to unravel and roll at the same time. It is usually a continues lenght of wire.

Every week I add a new design with related tutorials. Be sure to subscribe to receive an email notification with design inspiration.

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
