I haven't posted in a long time (school=no time for crafts).  I hope this hasn't been posted before, but I did this the other day, and it turned out better than I thought it would.  I got some of those glass marbles, the same kind you make the magnets out of, and I hot glued a piece of fishing line in between them.  I did about 10 pairs of marbles on one strand of line, and I also used the colored marbles.  I didn't use the clear ones because I thought they'd be kinda boring.  I hung mine in front of a window, a kind of window treatment if you will.  Sorry no pics though.  It looks great!! and is super easy and cheap! Hope you like!

P.S. I think this is a good thing to do in an apartment, for us urban dwellers

That's a great idea! I think I'll try that. I would put pictures behind clear ones, firts, though.

Ah! The joy that is flat backed marbles. How did we ever live without them?

that is a fun idea. i like hanging sparkly things, and this would be so easy.

oo. another idea! you could take an old lampshade, pull the fabric off, string fishing line from the top to the bottom and on the fishing line, do this same thing!

but much closer together than that. i just made the image so you'd all understand what i meant exactly.

THAT'S ANA AMAZING IDEA! how kool would that lamp be Wink i would be awesome to just cover a whole entire window in them though....like in a bathroom or something. i used them to frame around the inside of a mirror before. yea, where would we be without them lol!

Why don't you do some thing productive and kill yourself because standing here next to you is beginning to make me look like an idiot. And trust me, I'm capable of looking like an idiot without your assistance.
