With two combination pliers and one straight welding wire you can make a wonderful present.
A lot of variations are possible and only limited by your imagination.
About the wire: I took the cheapest wire I could find in the hardware store.
It looks as if it has a core of iron and some copper coating. Diameter it about 0.8-1mm and length 100cm.
You could also try this with other thick wire, but this welding wire is ideal. It is elastic to a certain degree what means it's not so soft like pure copper, and you can form nice straight parts. Just start with a thin one and then shift to thicker diameters if you like.
Step 1: Starting to bend
Take the straight welding wire, a metering rule and mark the middle of the wire. Then take the two pliers and bend the wire right in the middle, so you get a small loop on one side and two endings on the other. You can also use a small nail to get the loop real good shaped.
As you can see from the pictures I only used one small plier and my hand to bend the wire. Do it as you like.
Didn't match the middle?
The legs are of different length?
Well no problem, as long as it is only a few centimeters that doesn't matter. We will take care of that later.
