Ornament Hangers

kudzukweenNovember 18, 2008

If you have a string of beads that's broken, or a beaded tree garland that broke, use the beads to make matching ornament hangers. All you need is a spool of wire, a pencil and a marker to curl the wire around, and a small pair of pliers. I used beads from a 9' bead garland that matches my decorations.

Those hangers are so cute!! You seem to come up with something different every day or two!! Never thought of taking garlands apart until I saw all the stuff people do with them on here. I found our Dollar Tree it's only about 5 miles away!! Jan

Ya'll are so sweet! Thanks:D I made another version of hanger that I like better. You'll be gluing your beads on instead of crimping the wire. Photos on my blog with how-tos. I've already made over 25 ornament hangers with plenty of the garland beads left over! DH bought me a spool of 20 gauge wire for about $3, so it's a very inexpensive craft, but beautiful and functional, and children can make them quickly and easily. If you need a craft to keep the kids busy while Mom is Christmas shopping, this is it! And they can make gifts for everyone with their limited budget :D

Oh, and I just gave my gold beads to an artist I know. Oh well. Love your pointsettias from ribbon too!
