As we were packing up from our yard sale recently, I found this photo frame I had forgotten about. The nice thing about this particular frame was that it was large (12 x 15) – the reason I hadn’t used it was because it wasn’t a size I could easily use for photos – or I certainly didn’t have anything that was ready to go for this particular size!
It didn’t take long for me and my lovely sister, Cory, to get a little inspiration. (She’s actually waaayyy more creative than I am!)
We took off the backing and the glass and painted the frame white.
We then grabbed some chicken wire we had used to help some grass grow in the backyard. We snipped the chicken wire to fit.
I had previously purchased the wooden “family” to use on a wall project and this one was leftover (purchased at Michael’s for about $2). We painted that with the paint we had used on our walls and glued it to the frame. We used twine we had leftover from another project – we wrapped it around the frame and left a little in the middle for hanging.
We found the burlap clothes pins at Walmart for about $1.50. (Pictured here with 2 packets.)
Quick, easy, cute! And due to the fact I had some supplies already, cost less than $5.
