Form the first wire hanger into a circle by bending it around. Secure the circle by hooking the two ends together, using the pliers to twist the wire.

Form the second wire hanger into a circle by bending it around. This circle should be 2 inches smaller than the first one. Secure the circle by hooking the ends together by the same method you used for the first hanger.
