I decided my sunny upstairs parlour (still not glued together) needed a beaded curtain to separate it from the tarot room next door. I got out my jewelry supplies again and here's what I came up with. It's strung on an antique pin I had laying around. It's not installed yet. I want to hang it on a hook or something vs. glue it to the wall, just in case one of the bead strands breaks some day.
Do you do papercrafts? An altered altoid tin would hold a gift card and you could consider decorating it for the person instead of the contents. I made one for my SIL last year based on his love for zombies. The Amazon gift card is long gone, but he keeps the tin on his desk at work.
