pleasantly malformed- thanks. i found an old (possibly? a curtain rod, but it's thick like a dowel) laying around so i think i might start playing around with it and see what kind of stand i can come up with.
ivoryh1632- haha i almost did have a panic attack while making it. no one was home so i just started winging it and then when i when to cut it off, the scissors wouldn't cut through all the tape at first. I started thinking that my boyfriend would come home and find me dead and half wrapped in duct tape. but i got it off, thankfully.
