Why copy ideas for decorating your home out of design magazines and off HGTV when you can give it a more personal touch? Your home is where your heart is and the modern-day woman stores her heart in style with a contemporary twist -- by decorating with art made out of her children's umbilical cords!

What better way to show your guests that not only do you have exquisite taste in home furnishings, but that you also created a human. I mean, what's more DIY than that?

But HOW do you make umbilical cord art, you ask. You could go the old-fashioned way and keep the cord in a jar, but let's be honest, unless you're decorating your home for Halloween, you'll be giving off more of a tacky vibe than one of domestic elegance.

Not to fear, a company named Little Cord Art has you covered with a classier solution. Simply send your baby's umbilical cord to them, and they photograph the cord under a microscope, then blow it up as a reminder of the event that left you with stretch marks for the rest of your life.

Bonus Decorating Tip: Umbilical cord art goes great with jewelry made out of your children's baby teeth:
