- Wire coat hangers
- Assortment of colorful beads, all shapes, sizes, and colors
- Medium guage wire
- Heavy duty wire cutters
- Jewelery making pliers/cutters
Using your heavy duty wire cutters, cut the top of your hanger off.
Straighten out your hanger and bend into a shape you like.
Cut a piece of medium guage wire about 18" (46cm) long.
Make a small loop at one end to make sure your beads won't fall off.
String on your beads. Don't worry about design or pattern, just have fun and throw them on willy nilly.
When your wire is almost full, make another small loop at the other end to make sure your beads stay on.
Wrap your beaded wire around the hanger wire shape that you made.
Repeat all of these steps using your second wire hanger.
Hold your two pieces of decorated hanger together and bind together with the medium guage wire. I bound mine in two places but you can do as much or as little as you want.
- And there you go! Beads used up! Ugly wire hangers recycled! And a pretty ornament in your garden to catch the light.
