1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / There once was an ugly cable... on: August 03, 2012 03:33:03 PM
* This is my first ever post (yay!) and I had no idea where to put this so feel free to move it, I guess  Undecided

Anyways, this cable/cord totally bugged me. Just hanging there with his ugliness. I tried cleaning it but it just... wouldn't.

It's the cable/cord of the multi-plug where I have the TV, DVR, DVD blahblahblah.... it hangs from a shelf in the wall about two feet down to where it disappears behind my huge dresser.

The first thing I came up with was to wrap it with some ribbon. I chose one that matched with this pretty box (that box will be my second post here, yay!!)



But I didn't like how it turned out. To me, it looked weird. So... here comes idea #2. And you can see the ugly thing here...



I bought this fabric to use as curtains for my door-less closet. I wanted something heavy and thick so it's great. But I still have a looooot of it. So I grabbed some from that huge pile of leftovers.

I cut it into strips like this:



Hopefully you can cut better than me. I cannot cut in a straight line to save my life. It's a problem  Roll Eyes



A simple knot was all it needed (I twisted it so the knot would be facing the wall). I don't know how many strips, though... a lot, I guess  Grin



I like how it turned out. I think it sort of looks like the really long tail of a monster... a cute fluffly monster, perhaps? Or some kind of blue vine? It's cute.
I don't know if anybody on here had done anything like this but anyways, thanks for looking!!!

Well hello there!!! I'm Shabela! I've been lurking around here every now and then for the past few years... wow, that sounds kind of creepy. Yeah, I was the one looking through the Craftster window. Anyways, I thought it would be fun to share a couple of things I've done/made and be part of the community, instead of just have awesomeness-induced comas over what amazing things you all do  Wink
So here I am!!!  Tongue

Yaaaaaay!!!
