DIY wire hanging hooks

An observant reader noticed these cute hooks Wayne made for me. He made them to go on driftwood sticks and I'd use them when I went to markets, for hanging my windchimes.

They really are quite sweet, and they're easy to make. I know cause I've made them myself. Only I make them with thinner wire than Wayne does.

All you'll need is:

1. Wire thick enough to hold the weight of what you plan to hang. And as thick as you feel comfortable working with - ie you have to be able to bend it and cut it. If you're anything like me (a weakling) you'll want to stick to a not too hard wire...

2. Needle nose pliers and wire cutters. In case you don't know what they are, here is a visual aid:

And here are the instructions. 

So, if you followed that, and if I didn't do a bad job with the instructions, you should have something like this at the end of it.

Have fun! :)

  1. Nice! {Wayne's pretty precious to make these for you!}

  2. Great idea, pinned. Clear instructions.

  3. Thanks guys. I take stuff like this for granted, so I never think to post about them. Thanks for appreciating this.


I appreciate you taking the time to read my blog and leave feedback! Come back soon. :)
