    Welcome wall hanging is finished.

    I've been working on a wall hanging gift for a friend starting a business. I have it finished. I was especially proud of my (imo) genius "welcome" sign. I had thick purple yarn that I threaded a wire through to "write" the word then spray painted it the same color as the hanging rod. I hot glued it to the rod and then tied some clear fishing line and hot glued that on the back side.

    In a previous post I was asking opinions about the color of the rod / welcome sign, I still was undecided when I went to the store, then saw this brushed nickel w/ the cracked glass globes and knew it was perfect.

    Sonic screwdrivers, fez, bow ties, and Stetsons are cool.

    Oh my gosh, Kass....that was such an ingenious way to make the hanger. Yarn? Lordy..that is a very cool trick. This turned out awesome and the glass ball end caps is perfect. Beautiful work!

    You did a super job of stacking those fabrics to cut.
