If you've been on Etsy or walked into a West Elm recently you've probably seen these fancy brass hangers around. Here's an easy and cheap way to make one yourself!
Cut the 8 standard straws down to 4 inches. Cut the long straws into 4 pieces measuring 9 inches each.
On a 4' piece of wire, thread 4 of the 4 inch straws.
Coil the ends around each other to hold in place.
On one of the wire ends, thread on a 9 inch straw. One the other end, thread on two 4 inch straws.
On a new piece of 4 foot long wire, thread one of the 4 inch straws.
Thread the last two 9 inch straws to the top, and wrap two of the excess wires around the other two.
Spray paint with bronze or gold paint in a well-ventilated area.
These hangers are surprisingly sturdy, and can be used to hold small plants or ceramic jewelry bowls that measure 3-4 inches in diameter.
