Keeping in the vein of a DIY holiday season that doesn't cause credit debt, heres a fun, quick, project for a holiday party accessory, or a gift for a friend. I had all the materials lying around the house, but a quick trip to the craft store is all you need if you dont have these supplies (or, even better, just improvise!).
I had been looking for long metal bars to use in my jewelry,and when I found some old picture hanging mounts I knew they would be perfect. You can also put a clasp at the ends instead of the embroidery tie, i just thought this piece was begging for a little more color.
