I made It! this was very simple and easy, and I even added some other things to it. I glued to bottle caps to the base of the paperclip so it wouldn't fall over, just to give it some extra support.

Hi.. Thank you very much. And that was a great idea put bottle caps at the base for extra support.

You also can use a jumbo paperclip so it is strong enough to sustain it.
