I just flew in from my Thanksgiving trip to Western North Carolina last night (so fun!) and after jumping my car’s dead battery (not fun) and getting some much-needed sleep, I’m back to catch up on comments and emails (Could you tell my last two posts were scheduled? Hmm…probably).
I couldn’t contain my excitement this morning when I found out that while I was away, I was lucky enough to be featured on one of my very favorite thrifty décor blogs!!! I know it’s a little late, but I’d like to send a giant thankyou to Centsational Girl for featuring a thrifty tree trimming idea of mine last Friday!
I used simple materials:
Scissors: free (already owned)
Fishing wire: $6 (do you know anyone who likes to fish?)
Beads: $2/ tube at bead store
Paperclips: free (might or might not have come from work)
Total: $10… with plenty of materials left over for future projects!
Time: about 10 minutes per five-strand hook or 1-2 hours
Talk about bang for your buck!

Now, on to catch up on those 282 posts sitting in my Google Reader…
