The completed copper ring.I used a copper wire from an old transformer and nails to create a weather tool. So it is not at all expensive and not difficult to make this original ring.


Total Time: 45 Minutes

The completed copper ring.


  • 40 in copper wire (0.8 mm)
  • piece of wood plank
  • 24 nails
  • hammer
  • awl
  • pliers
  • wire cutters
  • protractor
  • ruler
  • compass or circle template
  • pencil


  1. Draw a circle on the board equal to the inner diameter of the ring + 0.15 inches.
  2. A circle drawn in pencil
  3. Use a protractor to divide the circle into 15-degree sectors.
  4. A circle with rays drawn from the center.
  5. Using an awl, mark the points of intersection of the sides of the sectors with the circle. Drive the nails into these points so that the nail heads are not flush. The nails will serve as uprights for weaving.
  6. Adding nails to the circle at each ray.

  7. Bend the wire in half and go around the nail in the front, then behind the next nail, then in front of the next nail, and so on, until you go around all the nails in the circle. As you weave and twist, make sure to pull the wires and keep them nice and tight. Use the awl to straighten the wire.
  8. Winding copper wire around the nails in a pattern.

  9. Twist the wires and weave in reverse using the other half of the wire. The wires will be twisted. Weave until you get the desired ring width. I made 7 rounds.
  10. Winding copper wire around the nails in a pattern.
  11. Remove the nails from the wood plank and release the woven horizontal part of the ring.
    To fix the woven part, insert the nails back into the holes formed by the wire.
  12. Removing half the nails to expose the woven copper.

  13. Pull out one nail and thread one end of the wire through these holes. Then skip one nail and pull out the next, thread the same end of the wire through the holes. Continue to weave in a round in the same way.
  14. Finishing the copper ring.

  15. Make another round, but thread the other end of the wire into the holes after removing the nails.
  16. Finishing the copper ring.
  17. Cut off the ends of the wire, bend and hide them.
  18. The completed copper ring.

This is gorgeous, and thank you for posting. I don't have access to transformer wire ... would you have any idea of the gauge (thickness)?

Thank you. I used wire 0.8 mm thickness (I did not notice that it is written 0.8 inches, of course the thickness is 0.8 mm).
