When it comes to DIYs we love things that look minimal, are easy to execute, and can be accomplished without many supplies. If I must be honest, I wouldn’t consider myself a crafter. While I’m creative, I don’t necessarily spend hours on projects outside of setting the occasional table. For me, this makes sense and keeps the items I store as minimal as possible. (As a kid I had endless craft supplies and as an adult I try to only purchase items I know I will use.) After living in the same townhome for three year, I choose simple DIYs and am saving my energy for when I decide to tackle a fixer upper. This DIY is one I choose to do every year and this year’s I love. Providing the much needed negative space for the eye in the living room, this DIY can be made with a few supplies on hand.

- Fishing line
- Black macrame cord
- Copper Pipe, 4 ft in length
- Tape Measure
- Assorted ornaments, in color and scale (We used a 4 small copper, 4 medium matte gold, 4 shiny evergreen, 4 matte blue, and 2 matte merlot ornaments.)
Begin by cutting black macrame cord to length. On a large flat surface lay out ornaments with even spacing. Begin by cutting your first length of fishing line to 3.5 ft in length. Attach to copper pipe and tie with a double knot. Add ornaments and tie with a single flat knot. Continue attaching each ornament and trim the excess fishing line. Tie on each subsequent row with the middle two rows being 4 feet in length and one additional ornament attached to the bottom. Attach 2 feet of black macrame cord to the end of the copper pipe. Hang on wall with a simple finishing nail. Sit back and enjoy your hard work!
