I made this crown (2 of them actually) when the Purim store had nothing good for the right price. I had copper wire left over from a light fixture we'd had installed. I have a stockpile of beads. Starting in the middle of the wire, I put a bead on and then twisted the wire below the bead, then added anotehr bead and another twist. About 4-5 inches away, I did the same thing all over again: bead, twist, bead, twist. Did it twice more, smoothed the curves between the peaks, then twisted it onto an elastic headband. It was not at all hard to make, and was very durable and incredibly comfortable.
