I've actually been putting into action some craft ideas that have been swirling around in my head. Most of the time I see them on www.pinterest.com. I see A LOT of ideas on there, so much that it's overwhelming! I'm visual, and that place is a wonderland for visual folks, but can also be a nightmare.
So here is what I saw on pinterest:
I loved the idea and knew that it would be easy to make, if I could find the right materials.
So, I went to my new favorite place, Cline's Antiques or "the junkyard" as my family calls it and found this old window frame for a whopping $2!!!!
I picked up some U tacks (Double Pointed Tack):
I just eyed where I wanted my first string, started on the left and I tapped in my first U tack, leaving enough to tie the string.
Put my string through, tied it and then pulled across the frame. I did measure this, same amount down from the top of the frame, then tapped in my 2nd tack and the right side. I then came back and tapped one in the middle.
Repeat all the way down the frame:
I actually tapped one in on the back of the frame for hanging and Voila, hang on wall.
Then, I clipped up my pictures with clothes pins. I used regular clothes pins to start, but they were just too big, they took away from the pictures. So I found smaller ones at Hobby Lobby and they worked great!
And I'm done! Easy Easy Easy. I love that I can change them out as often as I like and I don't have to order certain sizes for certain frames. I really do love it - great display, cheap, it didn't take me long to put together. It's just plain better than one large picture. It's more of a statement piece. :-)
