The wire frame is very sturdy and would be simple to make using 16 or 18 gauge wire. Focusing on pink and green colors, I then loaded beads, crystals, sequins and other little girlie tchotchkes onto 28 gauge wire and wrapped the goodies around the frame. I also added 28 gauge green wire around the top for an added splash of color. This is a great project you can do with any shape wire frame for a fun ornament or decoration. It's a good way to use up your orphan beads.
