Note: If the wire hanger is not thick enough, use two wire hangers. Make the first ring. Bend the second hanger into a ring the same size as the first ring; leave some extra length on the wire to form small hooks. Make the small hooks and crimp them to the top of the first ring. Tape the two rings together in several places to hold them together while you are working on the wreath.
