This are ghetto fabulous--or maybe just ghetto? Andy bent the wire for me by wrapping it around a dowel to keep it really circular. I used 18 gage wire. I originally bought beads to go on the wire, but the wire ended up being too thick. So--instead of going back to the store, I had a thought to search through my crazy button jar...and these are the results. They were all connected together when I took the picture, so I apologize. I was too lazy to unhook them. Not sure if my MIL likes them...but they are unusual!
