6.  Cut a 30-40″ piece of 20 gauge colored wire (image 6).  Bend one end of the wire into a loop with the needle nose pliers.  Thread the wire through a crystal bead and through the left hole in the bottom block (image 7).  Add 2.5″ of silver beads to the wire above the block, and then thread it through the left hole in the bottom of the top block (image 8).  Thread on 12″ of silver beads, then push the wire through the right hole of the top block and then thread another 2.5″ of silver beads under the top block. Push the wire through the right hole of the bottom block and add a crystal bead. Trim excess wire leaving a 1/4″ piece to bend into a loop to finish.

This sign could also read “Natalia’s Room” with the name on the top block and the word “room” on the bottom block. Try a star stencil instead of a flower to make kids’ door name signs for boys.
