Decor Hack of the Day: Abstract Doodle
Your simple line drawings will look great on a wall, too

What you'll need:
- Choose a pattern. For this project, we chose a cube. Keep in mind that it doesn't have to be perfect as it should look like a doodle.
- Shape the wire into that pattern then wrap the wire with yarn.
- Using small nails, hang the wire frame on the wall.
RL Tip: As an easy alternative, you may choose to do away with the wire. Following your pattern, place some nails on the wall where the "corners" are supposed to be. Tie one end of the yarn on one nail, then start outlining your pattern with the yarn, wrapping it around each nail as you go. You can also place nails randomly and tie the yarn from one nail to another until a pattern emerges.
