Simple DIY Ornament Hanger

Stop using plain hooks to hang your ornaments – use these dressed-up ornament hangers to add extra style and bling to your Christmas Tree this year. These ornament hangers are super simple to make – in an afternoon you can make enough for your own tree and to give as gifts! Customize the color wire and beads you use, based on your personal decor preference.

This project is part of Craft Lightning week – all week long, Angie from The Country Chic Cottage and I, along with a couple dozen blogging friends, will be sharing fast and simple holiday crafts like this one. If you missed yesterday, check out the Day 1 Craft Lighting Holiday Roundup.
