Christine de Beer - effortless floral craftsman
Wire is always sold in a roll and it can be very frustrating to try to remove bends, kinks and curls.
I find this to be the easiest and fastest way to straighten wire: Do not cut the wire from the roll. Secure the wire to a strong stick, dowel or bamboo.
Step on the stick with all your weight. Unroll the wire and pull it upwards.
Pull really tightly.
The wire will now be completely straight and ready to use... Ready to be bend and curled and perfect for adding a few new kinks
