- 24 gauge wire. (You can use whatever you like. I just used some silver plated wire I had, but you could even use the wire from the gardening section of the craft store and it should work just fine.
- Cord or ribbon, etc. to hang the ornament.
- Wire cutters
- Round nose pliers.
- Chain nose pliers.
Cut a piece of wire to your desired length. If you want a bigger ornament, cut more, smaller less. Add a few extra inches on each side to create the loop. I cut mine about 10 inches long.
This is where it gets a little bit tricky. Hold the button and then pull the wire through the other hole. I tried using a larger gauge wire and it was kind of a nightmare (but possible).
Note: Be careful pulling the wire through to make sure you don’t get any kinks in it while you’re pulling it through. Also, hold onto the button so it doesn’t twist either.
