Wrap hand torn strips of washi paper or crepe paper around the wires.
Use a knitting needle to twist them.
Or bend them as you like.
Use about 1" x 1-1/4" hand torn washi paper. Gather one side, apply glue on the end and roll between your thumb and forefinger. Leave to dry. (A)
Use 1" wide strips of paper and braid them first. Cut to about 1" plus long. Gather one end, apply glue, and make a pointed shape whilst rolling between your thumb and forefinger. Leave to dry. (B)
Attaching the hair

Puncture holes with an awl, spacing about 3/8" apart. (B)
