I had so much fun spending an hour making this OOAK branch wall hanging featuring two bone beads in the shape of whimsical frogs. I love mixing metals so I used 20 gauge gold colored wire to start the project and finished with 16 gauge copper wire to add contrast and make the loops for the hanger.
Step One: Wrap 20 gauge wire around the limb to provide a way to thread on chain and bead strands with loops.
Step Two: Slide lengths of chain around the wire (see photo above) so the pieces have a place to hang down.
Step Three: Attach little bead strands to the chain.
The 16 gauge copper wire is easy to make tight and doesn’t “unwind” like the 20 gauge wire.
I wrapped the copper wire very tight and used needlenose pliers to make hanger loops.
After the bead strand sections were attached, I added decorative charms to each bottom for more interest.
Ta dah! This project only took an hour! It looks cool hanging in a window but works good on a wall too!
