Using the 24-gauge copper wire from the coil or spool, and leaving a Â¾" end, wrap the 24-gauge wire around the base of one leg, near the tail, and then wrap around the tail twice. Slide a bead on and center it over the body. Attach the beaded wire to the neck, wrapping twice around. Do not cut the 24-gauge copper wrap wire. Go back and make a coil with the Â¾" at the beginning end.
