For my first instructable I decided to make an ornament for Christmas. Please feel free to make yours for the holiday of your choice. It's not too quick, but it is easy, and I was happy with the way mine turned out.

Step 1: Get Your Stuff

Not a lot is needed.
4 wire coat hangers
1 string of mini lights
1 roll of duct tape

Step 2:

Bend the Coat hangers into a circle.

Step 3:

Tape all four hangers together turned 45 degrees apart.
Bend the hook part of the hanger to align all four individual hooks to make one heavy duty hook.

Step 4:

Tape minilights to the wire frame. I found 3/4" x 4" strips of duct tape worked best.

Step 5:

Finished ornament is ready to hang and plug in.
Original instructions were on my site
This instuctable got me thinking....Using just 2 wire hangers form the shape of a star and follow through just like this glow ball..
Yeah, That would be cool. If you want to make a lot of them, you could make a bending jig from a board and a few dowels.<br> Thanks for adding to this, I think I'll try it myself.<br> FWIW: these are a lot better than my horrible photography.
