This project is sort of a simpler to execute version of the DIY cord noticeboard we posted a while back. Cut string into desired lengths, leaving a little extra to tie around the pins. Push pins into the wall then tie the ends of the string securely around the pin. Use paper clips to hang up light weight items. Cute coloured paperclips from stores like Kikki. K give a more finished feel, but we kind of like the standard silver ones.
