You can totally make that out of wire and it should be really easy. Something around 10 or 12 gauge should work fine. The biggest issue is finding the wire. You need less than a foot but unless there is a place near that sells bulk, you will be stuck buying 25 feet of it.
Ask around if any of your friends or family have some Romex (electrical wire) laying around. That would save you the trouble of buying it and have a ton of extra. Will bend relatively easy and will definitely hold its shape.
EDIT: Actually, Home Depot sells bulk wire. You can buy one foot of the wire for under $1. It will also give you the chance to see the different gauges of wire and pick the one you think works best. Just use a pair of needle nose pliers to bend and shape it.
