It's that time of year! I'm sure many of you make ornaments for yourself, or to give to friends and family. Here's a simple tutorial for a customized beaded hanger - it makes your gift that much more special!
Wrap N Tap pliers; Chain Nose Pliers; Wire Cutters; Round Nose Pliers; Ruler; Cup Bur
Materials Needed: 18 gauge wire; 24 gauge wire; assorted seed beads or other beads of your choice
First, cut approximately 5 inches of 18 gauge wire; mine is silver plated. You can use sterling if you wish, or copper, or brass, whatever you want!
Turn a simple loop on one end of the wire using your round nose pliers; I made mine small by turning the wire at the small end of the plier.
Next, insert your wire in the Wrap N Tap plier as shown; I used the largest round. Turn the wire in the opposite direction of your first, small loop.
