17 more projects, part 2

I'd like to have some curlicue doodads above a few of my pictures, but don't want to spend much money on it. Well, I don't want to spend ANY money.
Here is a picture hung in my dining room with a metal curlicue doodad over it.  (Were you wondering what the definition of "curlicue doodad" was?)  These little toppers help the look of a rectangular picture hung under a vaulted ceiling.  Like I said, I don't want to spend much on these, so I am looking at some ideas. 

I just found out that curlicue is spelled with a "c" rather than a "q" - curlique.  Thank you, Mr. Spelczek.
I picked up one little piece of metalwork from the 90%-off section at Hobby Lobby - my kinda price tag!  The catch is that an end is broken off.  I think I can recreate the end with a craft stick, Mod Podge papier mache and Rustoleum's hammered-look spray paint.

That will take care of one little picture.  But I want to take care of a BIG picture, so I am looking at some DIY inspiration - a real trash-to-treasures story:

Something like this project from Suzy's sitcom.  Pretty cool, huh?

Or How-To Gal's versionHer fabric wall art here is simple, and the variety is unlimited. I might have to make one of these, too.
OK, it turns out there are TP roll rescuers all over - I like those wreaths

But now THIS TP roll art is just outrageous! - and fascinating!  The tree is delicate and lovely, but the faces are a little creepy, though still fascinating.
