Repurpose Your Camera Strap to Turn Your Shooter Into a Work of Art

We have four digital cameras in the house right now. Two we own, two we're testing. With so many lying around it's easy for one to go tumbling due to a late night cat race through the apartment. We've been trying to figure out a better way to store at least our permies, when we found this repurposed vintage tie project... The idea comes from Christie Chase, who was actually simply following instructions from a guest post on Design*Sponge. Derek and Lauren wrote in to Design*Sponge about how they spiffed up their Canon camera strap with some new fabric. They simply made a little sock that their boring black strap could snake through and voilá, a cute new strap.

Christite used an old tie she bought for a buck and turned it into a cover for her camera strap.

We love the idea of sprucing up a camera strap and using it to hang your camera on the wall near your front door. That way you always know where your camera is -- after all, we're always tearing the apartment apart to find our digicam right as we're walking out the door. Bonus: it turns your camera and its strap into a working piece of wall art.
