I saw one similar to this at Pottery Barn Kids and Loved it, and also saw the potential of how easy it would be to make for my daughters room.
I was going to get one of those snazzy butterfly shaped paper punches... but realized that i didn't have any finances to allocate to my off the cuff crafty project, and so i pulled out the little scissors and started cutting... + string + seed beads + plastic ring I cut off a large bowl lid i don't need = this!




Hope you like it Smiley

This is so pretty! Love it! Did you knot it under the beads?

thanks, I tied a single knot at the bead actually... so it could be easily loosened and moved, in case I wanted to change the spacing after I was done.
