EDDIE ROSS - No Wire Hangers! (Well, Maybe Just One) Here's a Christmas wreath so darling and dear, even Miss Crawford would approve. Take one of these... and bend it into the form of a circle. Then, grab your glue gun and as many round ornaments in varying sizes as you can find. To secure the metal cap to the ball, dab a little hot glue and press. Next, untwist the end of the hanger, then string one ornament at a time, making sure to alternate the placement and colors as desired. Check out the final result!

brenna’s pinhole artwork this perfect-for-summer project comes from brenna berger at paper + ink. she documents her amazingly clever custom invitation designs on her blog, so when it comes to paper it’s no surprise that she’s full of ideas. i love the simple, modern feel of these, and the fact that they cost next to nothing to make. on an semi-related note, i recently decided to have a movie marathon of all corporate “must make it big in nyc” movies from the eighties (wall street, secret of my success, working girl…you get the drift), but now i am definitely not going to start it until i have some paper and a thumbtack ready:) thanks, brenna! -kate CLICK HERE for the full how-to after the jump! materials: 1. paper (preferably cotton) 2. thumbtack 3. pony bead and hot glue (optional) 4. scrap cardboard (at least as big as your paper) 5. tape 6. image of choice (some options are available here) 5. cut to size and you are done!
