I'm not exactly sure how it was done, but I think Buddy on Cake Boss made a cake and to make barbed wire he used the really thin licorice strings. Maybe you can figure it out from there...sorry I can't be of more help!

Here's a link to another thread about making barbed wire...

If you want to make ot from fondant, it seems rather easy actually. The most part will be twisted. Then at certain points, coil a single strand around the twisted fondant. From there, you need 4 spikes, 2 pointing up and 2 pointing down. You can attach them with whatever glue you use, or make them stick up from the piece you used to make the coil.
I think the conly challange will be keeping it in place while it dries. Use cotton or paper to keep it still.
