I have been wanting to participate in MEP's and E's Real Women of Pinterest (RWOP) for some time now, but Wednesdays always seem to get away from me. Finally, I have a bit of free time on my hands (shhh, don't tell my husband), and I wanted to share an idea I originally got from Becky Higgins (scrapbooking guru) and recently saw again on Pinterest: the floating ornament.
The idea is easy. Get some screw-in hooks from Target, Wal-mart, or Lowes. Measure the area you plan to hang the hooks, then divide by three or five to space them evenly (if desired). Screw in the hooks (easy to do by hand). Get some fishing line or other clear string, and use it in different lenghts to suspend the ornaments of your choice. I'm telling you, this project took all of 20 minutes, and I love the results. The challenge was getting a good photo...they're much more impressive in person.

And there you have it, my first RWOP post!
