DIY Wire Memory Keeper

 

While browsing Pinterest Sunday morning, I came across this simple wire memory keeper and decided to put down my coffee and make one for myself!

Just 3 supplies needed…

Some black wire – I used 20 gauge – a tape measure, and needle nose pliers/clippers.
Measure 4 lengths of wire – 36 inches each…

Continue twisting…
