I love pictures... taking them, editing them, and of course displaying them. In an effort to make something I can change frequently and still adds style to my little home, I came up with this.... READ ON:)
Speaking of pictures... the above photo of my photo board sucks!... but you get the point.
To create adorable little fancy clothespins you'll need some clothespins, mod podge, scrapbook paper cut to size and a tiny piece of sandpaper.
Cut your scrap book pieces approximately the same size as the clothespin.
Coat the top of the clothespin with a thin layer of Mod Podge and then apply the paper.
Once you have covered all of them, take your sand paper and using a downward brush stroking motion, rough up all the edges.
Next you'll rub the edges of the clothespins in the distress ink to your liking... I like lots of distress ink.
I also did some on the plain side and all the edges of the clothespins.
Above is my frame with chicken wire stapled to the back of it.
It was cute.... but.... it seemed a little plain.
So I took some fabric and stapled that behind the chicken wire.
I love the clothespins and the chicken wire with fabric.
It was exactly what I was trying to create.
I also distressed the frame a little with sandpaper and distress ink. (btw... Hobby Lobby sells that stuff)
It definitely stands out in my little tiny red kitchen and dining room.
