3. Cut off the excess wire.

4. Loop the end of the wire, tight enough to be snug but not so tight that the wire won’t bend into a circle.

5. Thread ribbon through the loops at each end of the wire; tie off.

6. Wrap the ribbon around the loops to disguise the wire; tie and trim off excess ribbon.
