I really wanted to to make a few things for Daniels office, but was having a hard time coming up with ideas. I knew I wanted to put some photo displays together for him but we hadn’t gotten around to buying any picture frames so I snooped around the house and this is what I came up with.
Now this is not a “Pinterest Perfect” craft/DIY and thats why I love it! anyone can do this, its super cheap, easy and simple!!
Here’s what you will need:
- Clothes pins (got mine at the Dollar Tree)
- Twine, Yarn, or Ribbon (I used twine also from the Dollar Tree)
- card stock, card board, or scrapbook paper (I used scrapbook paper that I had on hand) any firm paper product will do.
- Photo’s you want displayed
- Hole punch
- any type of adhesive you’d like to use (I used scotch tape and rolled it into sticky rings)
Vertical Ultrasound Display:
You may not need to use the card stalk or firm background if you’re using sturdy pictures, but I used some of our Ultrasound pictures for this so they needed a firmer background. The first thing you’re going to do is glue or tape your picture to the firm paper of your choice and then cut it out. You will then want to use your hole punch to punch a hole in the center at the top of the picture you’re using. Once you’ve done this to all the pitures you plan on using you are going to lead your string through the hole of the top image and then lead it back through to tie it in place at that end. You will place the next picture the amount of space you want it apart from the first picture and repeat this process until all your pics are secured. Cut any left over string off and you’re done! It’s ready to be displayed wherever you choose!
Horizontal Clothespin Display:
This one is even simpler then the last! I used some of our Disneyland vacation pics for this project. All you need to do is cut the length of string for the amount of photos you want to include, then secure the photo on the string with a clothespin and space them out to your liking. I hung these up only to take a picture of what it looks like but both of these are now hanging in Daniels office. You can hang them in a sloping position or firm and straight across just play around with it and see what looks best!
