For years I have admired the fancy-schmancy ornament hooks on sale at craft stores, posh emporiums, and in upper echelon catalogs. Admired, but refused to pay for something I could do myself…if I had the supplies…if I had some working space…if I had the time…if, If IF!

Last weekend I had a lovely time “wasting” an evening in experimenting with beading and wire. I de-balled a couple of necklaces and created 14 ornament hangers. I attached them to over-sized jingle bells and added a ribbon. Viola! My co-workers appreciated the cubicle embellishments almost as much as I did when doing them.

Next up: different wire weights and maybe a peg grid to loop the wire on.
