New York, New York. I love this amazing city. It’s unique, magical and inspiring to say the least. We recently spent four days here for Daniel’s 30th birthday eating and exploring, our usual plans. I think I only got my camera out a total of five times, capturing a few things here and there. For once I spent all of my time soaking up my surroundings.

I’ve had this obsession lately with wall hangings, they are everywhere. These are a few of my favorites: here, here and here. The last one obviously being my inspiration for this project.

As I have said before I am not good at decorating, particularly when it comes to hanging things on the walls. It just never occurs to me. But I had been thinking lately how much I would love to have something to hang over the couch. I’m not big on spending money in general but especially right now knowing that in a years time we will once again be starting fresh.

Total cost for this project was $4. I already had a spare sheet that I was able to cut into strips. The stick came from the side of the road and was then hacked at with a steak knife (I know, I know but at the time it was all I could find). I used white sewing thread to hang the fabric from the stick and I had leftover faux suede leather (from a birthday gift project) that I used to hang the stick on the wall. The only purchase I made was black fabric dye.

It only took a few hours to make. Most of that being the time it took to dye the fabric pieces. I used 3 pieces of fabric per section, each the size of a ruler.

Overall it’s not perfect, there are some visible flaws but I’m ok with that. The whole time I was making it I kept thinking what a great gift something like this would be.

So, what do you think?
