This is exactly what has happened with my entry way/porch area. I knew I wanted to put stripes on the wall but it was a matter of finally getting around to it.

Tutorial- Wire Wrapping Cord Ends

The technique is used to wire wrap a coil to end a necklace using different types of cords such as leather, ribbon or satin. The tools needed are cutting pliers, round nose pliers, needle nose pliers, and duck nose pliers. You will also need about 12" of wire. I'm using 24 gauge in this tutorial.

Step 2- take your cord that you will be using for your necklace and slide the about 1/2" of the cord end through the loop. Step 3 Use your duck bill pliers to hold the end with the cord end and using your needle nose pliers to wrap the wire around your cord. Here is how the cord and wire look after a couple of wraps. Continue wrapping the wire and pushing the wire against the other wire to keep them tight. Making a Wrapped Loop and Double-Wrapped Loop.
