12 Gift Ideas of Christmas: Gift Idea #12!

Well, this is my last gift idea of Christmas, and I’m sure going to miss sharing these ideas with you all! For my big finale, I’m bringing you a very practical idea – a cute ornament hanger! How many stunning, beautiful ornaments are hanging on your tree by a cheap bit of wire or an old string? I’m sure you have at least a few. But, I’ll bet that you’ve never made a gorgeous pair of earrings and stuck them on dinky old ear wires, have you? Ornaments deserve something nice to hang from too! Luckily, my ornament hanger idea is so easy to make, and you can whip up a whole bunch of them in a very short time! All you need is some wire (I used 16 gauge, but you could use 18 gauge with lightweight ornaments), wire cutters, round nose pliers and some round objects to loop around. All you need to do to create these hangers is to wrap one loop of wire around an object with a large circumference, like a pill bottle or spool, then wrap another loop of wire in the opposite direction of the first loop with a smaller object, like a lipstick tube or a glue stick. Cut off the ends of the wire, leaving 1/4 inch of extra wire, and use round nose pliers to turn loops on the ends. That’s it! If you want to get more creative, you can even add large hole beads to the wire!

Well, it has really been a treat to share my gift ideas with you – I’ll see you again next week with more tips, tricks and fun ideas!

Happy Countdown to Christmas! – Sara

  • Great idea! While I doubt I’d give these as gifts, I nearly smacked myself wondering why I hadn’t thought of this before for our tree.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Fantastic idea! I’ve looked @ the colorful craft wire and wondered what fun thing I could make w/it. Now I know! I’ve got some time off during the holidays where I’ll spend it making some ornaments AND hangars…for next year’s gift giving! Thank you!
