Starting with about two feet of wire, make a wreath shape by forming the wire around a drinking glass or a large pillar candle. Make the coil handle by wrapping the excess wire around a pencil or chopstick and then carefully slide the coil off.
For the ribbons, I used 3-inch lengths of 1/2-inch wide shear ribbon in 5 colors (gold, silver, black, brown, and white). The ribbons are just tied onto the wire.
The gear in the middle of each ornament dangles from a piece of embroidery floss tied to the wire.
