|Materials: 18g copper wire, ruler, round nose pliers, flat needle nose pliers, wire cutters, and an object to wrap the wire around. I used a pottery tool I had available to get the right size I wanted for the hanger.|
STEP 1 (not pictured) - Cut the wire into approximately 6" lengths. This size worked well for my purposes. Adjust the length based on your needs and trial and error.
STEP 2 - Ensure the end of the wire is flush cut, not beveled. Grasp the end of the wire at the very tip of the round nose pliers and make a small loop. To get a nice even loop, grasp the wire at the very end (so it's not hanging over the top of the pliers.) Rotate your hand/wrist towards you a quarter of a turn, release the wire being careful not to move the position on the shaft of the pliers, rotate the pliers back towards the wire, grasp again and rotate towards you another quarter turn. Repeat this process until the end of the wire meets the tail.
STEP 10 - String on your ornament!
