in this step you take the needle nose pliers, and the wire and you put the pliers at the end of the wire and your fingers where the coil begins. Then slide you finger down the wire for a flat and straight wire.than after you straighten the wire you cut it to the length you want.

Paper clips make great hangers. One end on the piece and the other on the tree. Good crafting

I acknowledge that you admit that "I just did the basics to show you" but I am encouraging members to try to cut the shapes crisply so that the ornament looks good even when the lights are off. Using the curves and shapes already in the bottle some very attractive designs can be achieved. Even the clear plastic looks good. I have enjoyed making them.
So that's what happened to those!
