I saw something like this on Pinterest a long time ago and immediately pinned it. I knew I wanted to make it someday, and since I currently have so much scrap wood (thanks to the hubs), I decided it was time.
This was a pretty easy project, and I absolutely love how it turned out!
These are the materials I used: scrap wood or wood planks (could be small pieces put together like mine, or one long solid piece), paint, screws, 18 gauge aluminum wire (sold at Home Depot), superglue, double sided mounting tape, and binder clips.
After the paint dried, I glued the pieces together with superglue. I attached a screw to each end of the planks, using measuring tape to mark the spot. Then, I wrapped 18 gauge aluminum wire around one screw to the other.
Look at my beautiful Mommy in the middle. Love her!
