Step 1: Gathering Supplies

Materials:
* wire
* 2 sets of needle nose pliers
* wire cutters (if pliers don't have them at the bottom)
* wine cork
* hammer

Step 2: Starting the Braid

Before you start braiding, first you need to connect the wires by twisting them together tightly.

Step 3: Braiding

If you don't know how to braid then look at this step. If you do, then skip this step and continue the project.

Step 4: Finishing the Ring

After you have braided the wires, repeat the second step to close the braid. To connect the two ends. Twist them together tightly so you can't tell that it isn't just a circle.

Step 5: (Bonus Step)

If you would prefer a bracelet, do the same exact thing but use thicker wire and make it longer.

    Cool. I like the idea of making it a ring. Would you braid it tightly?
