I know I said I would stop...but its just not in my nature! I start studying for finals, and all of a sudden black out. When I wake up, I’ve got a staple gun in one hand, and scissor in another! I just can’t help myself!
One of these episodes hit me while studying for my Contracts final. Thankfully the project only lasted about 10 minutes, but it was enough of a break to simply lift my spirits!
It’s nothing outrageously unique, but I’ve really started getting into this upcycling concept which has really got my creative juices flowing
There it is. Simple! I found this frame a month or two ago at this Goodwill Outlet in Omaha. (how cheap can I get right?!) The clothes pins are from my grandmother’s laundry room (which I cut and glued strips from old Starbucks giftcards to give them some color!) and the twine I found in the closet. Oh, and the photos...all are cut from my calendar which is about to end!
How’s that for recycling?!
Just from looking at this, you can probably figure out how it is done. Cut pieces of twine, staple it to the back of a frame (tie a knot on the end of the twine, or ribbon, whatever so it doesn’t slip through the staple!)
I’ve had this empty frame on my wall for a while with no ideas of what to do with it. Since I live with my grandparents, I try only to put necessary holes in the walls! So this way it is one hole (to hold the frame) and as many pictures as I want! Perfect for my living situation!
Yes the frame needs repainted, and I could have made this much cuter...but I love it just the way it is!
