Resourceful Drawer Pulls

A department store bag brought home from a Christmas gift exchange sported the cheeriest red and white braided cord handles.

I knew I wanted to cut them off and use them for something--maybe gift wrap. Then my husband suggested that they would make nice drawer pulls for the hutch.

We cut each handle in half and they ended up being just right for four drawer pulls. 

I can't tell you how long I've put off buying cord to make pulls for these drawers. But I'm glad I never got around to it. This is much cuter and it makes me smile to be resourceful with something that would've otherwise been thrown away!

Oh, that turned out adorably!! How resourceful. Is this on the darling hutch with the red and white polka dots in the background?

That looks really cute! I love how resourceful you are.

Enjoy your evening!

I've done something like this with white ribbon bows for my baby's dresser... they were tough to keep in bows though. This is really cute.
