 Using about 15 inches of craft wire, create a wire wrap loop on one end.

String an 8mm round, helix, 8mm round, helix, 8mm round, helix and five 6mm rounds. Bend the wire at the bottom.

Wrap the wire around the beads and back up to the wire wrapped loop. Trim the excess wire.

Add an ornament hanger and tie a ribbon onto the ornament if you want to add a little color to your sparkle.
