You can make this as easy as possible for family members, by using a sharp pencil and gently pushing a hole in the middle of the monkey nut. Then you thread the wire through the nut. Using the pliers you can shape this to a nice circle.
I hope you agree that this will also make a lovely gift for the wildlife lovers in your life. It will add much needed food for the birds in your garden!
