You know the old saying, "how long is a piece of string"? Well, how long is it and how many ways can you use the humble old ball of string. Anyone remember macrame? I can remember making some basic pot plant holders back in the 70's and I saw one at my local thrift store the other day and I'm kicking myself for not grabbing it. Put a basket inside and you've got a perfect place for hanging storage. I've found some great ideas for using string, including macrame, on Pinterest. Check these out.
So, how long is a piece of string? I thought I'd better stop there. Jute, twine (plain or coloured), thicker rope can all be used for such beautiful things.
