I stopped in at my parents’ house the other day and was looking at their Christmas ornaments, and noticed that some of them were hanging on some fancy schmancy beaded wire hangers. And all I could think was, “WHY HAVEN’T I DONE THIS BEFORE?”
So now I’ve made a couple, and it literally took me 5 minutes. I know this isn’t exactly an ornament, but…it still kind of fits. Here’s how to do it:
- 18 Gauge Wire
- Some pretty beads (make sure the holes are large enough to fit on the wire)
- Needle nose pliers
- Something circular that you can use to curl the wire. I just used the cap of my glue bottle, which worked perfectly.
Now wrap the wire back around whatever circular object you are using, to curl it into the shape you want…
For the top of the hanger, make just a simple hook shape, so that it will be easy to hang on the tree. (I also curled the very end of the wire using the tip of my pliers.) For the bottom though, you can get a little fancier.
Isn’t that easy? I made another hook in an S shape, which was even quicker:
How cute is that?
