Unfortunately I live in an apartment, and I can't just draw/paint on the walls when the mood strikes me anymore. Landlords don't tend to be as understanding or supportive of my creative impulses. In Beijing I crafted a large tree in our living room from construction paper. Although I have some more paper crafts in the works (they are in the cutting stage) I want to share something that I did over the weekend. The best part: It only took 15 minutes and a few things I already had sitting around!
I inserted one pushpin into the corner of the wall, then inserted a bunch more randomly. I looped the yarn around the corner pushpin, then around each of the other pushpins, always wrapping around the corner one in-between wrapping other pushpins. Brian thought this looked pretty cool too, so we decided to do the adjacent wall as well, so it's a whole corner!
I apologize for the bad photos, it's rainy here and our bedroom isn't overly bright. Oh, why did I choose white linens when I have white walls? Have you seen those clorox commercials where the person is diving into a bed full of germs? That commercial is frightening, and since college I've always had white linens so that I can bleach the life out of them (literally!).
