Ornament Hangers

Make these from a spool of 20 gauge wire and some beads to match your Christmas decorations. I used a 9' beaded garland for mine. Use broken strands of beads or garland, and about 4"-6" of wire.

Kudzu, you did a beautiful job on those! I went to three different places to find fancy ornament hangers like those. Paid $3.99 for a package of 24 at Target, and mine don't have those pretty beads you are putting on your's! What a great idea to use the beaded garland for the beads instead of having to buy all the different packages of beads. You are too clever! ;o) Luvs

Thanks so much,Ya'll! How cool is that, Patti! This would be a great craft to keep your grandchildren busy while their Mom is out Christmas shopping. And they'd have very nice gifts to give to family. DH bought a spool of wire for $3 and I paid $2 for the garland I took the beads off. I'm sure you can find cheaper garland at Dollar Tree or Dollar World.
here is another way to make them that I liked better, using glue to hold the beads on instead of crimping the wire. Photos and how-tos on my blog.
