Getting Crafty Make Your Own Photo Display Frame

This weekend I finally put together this adorable frame that I saw on Pinterest.  The idea came from
Talia Christine's blog.  Her husband actually handcrafted her frame from recycled wood (what a guy!).

Given that my hubby and I are not that handy, I decided to try and find a cheap frame.  After searching the Goodwill, Michaels and Ross I finally found a version I liked at m the Burlington Coat Factory.

Anyway, I thought I'd post my version just so you could see how easy it is to create.

As I mentioned, I went to Burlington Coat Factory and found this 16x20 frame for $14.99.  I removed the glass and matting and attached twine (purchased at Michaels for $2.50) and strung it across.  I attached the twine with heavy tape (I was concerned that if I used nails, I might crack the frame) and using clothespins that I already had, hung up some of my favorite pictures from Camp.

I love this idea!  I think it is a great way to display 4x6 prints and to easily interchange them.  This would also be a great way to showcase holiday cards or give to a friend as a gift.  If you end up making one for yourself, be sure to share a picture with us.  Happy crafting!
