2010 Leftovers: Cleaning out my blog closet

Wire nest ornament

In the interest of cleaning out my blog closet before the new year begins, I thought I would show you a few projects that didn’t get their own posts. Some weren’t really worthy of a whole post and some just fell through the cracks.

Cafe-style curtains

Last January, I made some no-sew cafe curtains for my brother’s apartment using hem tape (before I got my sewing machine). These are terrible photos, so they didn’t get posted.

Wire bird nest ornament

In August, I made this wire and bead bird’s nest ornament for my friend Rita, based on this tutorial. I planned to make more for holiday gifts, so I didn’t want to spoil any surprises by posting. But then I didn’t end up making more, so here it is!

With bedroom curtain panels

Also in August, I bought some dark brown curtains for our bedroom. They were $15 a panel from JCPenney.com, a fantastic place to find cheap window treatments if you can look past all the heavy drapes and dated options.

Gold tree wall decor

The bedroom still needs some dressing up, but I think the curtains helped a lot to make the space cozier.
