This is a little different from what I normally post, but I wanted to share a couple of my favorite projects I've done around the house. They are simple but make me smile. I Hope you like them, too!
I made a jewelry display out of a handful of buttons, embroidery thread, and a sturdy branch. Just thread the buttons onto the center of a long-ish piece of string (about 3 ft), wrap both ends around the branch until there are only a couple inches of string left on each end. Wrap those tails around the string between the button and the stick in opposite directions. Knot securely. This creates a little bit of space between the button and the branch so your jewelry can hang more easily.
I used a sturdy branch to hang a sheer curtain dividing my desk and bed. Nothing fancy, just some eye hooks in the ceiling and colored thread holding up the branch. (Excuse my mess!)
