My Little House Design: Paper Clip Ornament Hanger

Paper Clip Ornament Hanger

Two things happened this week:

1) I found a tub of paperclips that I've had since middle school.
2) I started putting ornaments on my tree and had about 20 with no hooks.

These two occurrences + laziness + frugalness =

 Yep, I took my endless supply of paperclips (they sell them in packs of 750 and I think I've maybe used one a year for 15 years so I had about 735 to work with)...

 and my ornaments with no hooks and I made ornament hooks. Which saved me probably $3.99 and a trip to the store so not big stakes but still a win-win!

 First, I first spread the clip apart so it made this 'S' shape
 Then I inserted the smaller end into the ornament
Then I pinched the ends together so that the ornament wouldn't slip out
And then I hung it on the tree. I also sort of love that my paperclips are colorful but the plain silver ones would work too. I'm sure I didn't invent this idea but I am glad that I pulled it from the recesses of my mind so I didn't have to go out and buy ornament hooks.

Have you done this before? Also, my tree is up! I'll post about it tomorrow.
