I`ve used cooper wire before and it is more pliable than you might think...so maybe is just simple twisting and creativity

It's just twisting wire with needle nose pliers.

Most people seem to bend the wire by hand and use a printed out alpha as a template.

I don't know if there is any actual template tool where you could just form the names on it.

Maybe one of these. Or something similar, plus skill and a lot of patience!

Thank you ladies, I went to Michaels and bought some wire, I tried 2 names, they didn't come out perfect, but the girls loved them.

I can tell that with practice I could get better. I'm thinking i found my mothers day gifts. :-) So I'm going to get some more and see if I can make some pretty ones by mothers day.
