How do you use a drill to twist them? I’m making a brooch bouquet for myself and think that this would be a nice touch for my BMs

I’ll take pictures for you but i basically put a hook (that you’d screw into the ceiling to hang say a plant from) and tightened it & voila!
Here is a link that shows you from another wedding website:

Some pictures of the process (I’m using beads for the girls, brooches and flowers for me, I want mine to look like the below picture):
Ok so my pictures of the process:
Get 1 of these hooks:
Insert it in the drill:
Slide a beed on the wire, twist it 3-4 times to get it secured, leave room for the hook to fit
using pliers to hold the opposite end of the hook slowly press the drill “trigger”, you can speed up when you’re comfortable with doing this (took me a few tries to get comfortable with it, your end result should look like this:
then slowly remove the beed & wire from the hook, you should have a finished product that looks like this:
I used pliers to hold it near the top and twisted it tighter with my fingers.
Don’t twist it too much on the drill or the wire will snap (I learned this the hard way …. a few times!!)
