*Great Christmas gift alert.
I was at Michael's and found this lovely wooden frame in the last call section for $8.00. I am always looking for a new way to add some decor in to our very plain home so alas a project was born. Total this project cost me $14.
What you will need:
- (1) backless frame
- (9) clothes pins
- 1 roll of twine or jute
- gold paint
- sponge brush
- staple gun
Step 1: Measure out how many inches you would like your strings to be apart. I measured the frame and divided the inches by 4 to get a good idea. I marked each spot I wanted to put in a staple with chalk.
Step 2: The picture above is a little misleading. I realized after that I should put my staples vertically on the inside ridge of the frame. Your staples will serve as the spot where you will be tying your jute.
Step 3: Paint your frame. I used metallic acrylic paint. I love acrylic paint because it doesn't take too long to dry and its easy to work with. I also used a sponge brush because I still wanted the wood portion to come through. I did about three coats and let it dry for 40 minutes.
Step 4: All that is left is hanging your pictures with clothes pins and finding the perfect spot in your home!
I hope you enjoyed this! Don't be too stressed if you have to play around with your staple placement... the weight of your pictures/clothespins make the spacing seem off. Also, the tighter you tie your jute/twine the less slack for slouching.
