Hanging Ornaments

Source: The Martha Stewart Show, November 2010


Keep holiday ornaments secure by anchoring them to Christmas trees and wreaths with wire.


  • 24-gauge wire

  • Wire cutters

  • Ornament


  1. Choose a color of 24-gauge wire that coordinates with your tree.

  2. Thread 5-inch piece of wire through loop at top of ornament. Twist the wire around itself several times to secure. To hang, wrap the twisted wire around branch until ornament is secure.

  3. When you're ready to take off the ornaments, hold the branch and slide the ornament off. Store the ornaments with the wire attached, and they'll be ready to hang when you take them out next year.
