No Sew Wall Hanging Under $10 – DIY

At times, I must admit that my inability to sew makes me feel like a DIY phony.

Today I feel like a real damn rebel, because I am going to show you how I made this woven wall hanging without sewing. What is even better...I made it for under $10 (take that Urban Outfitters). For your convenience, I…

Agate Christmas Ornament DIY
