I have been seeing wonderful ways to display photos in the stores lately. I wanted to buy a couple of different ones but when I looked at the prices, I just could not see myself paying what they were asking. Some were as high as $20 for one display.
I decided to make my own version and for less than $8, I was able to make 4 displays. Supplies:
- 4 very thin wooden plaques Michael's $1 ea.
- 1 small bottle of acrylic paint
- 2 bulldog clips Wal Mart $1.88 for 2
- scrapbook paper
- 2 mini clothespins
- glue stick
Trace scrapbook paper to fit your plaque, cover it with glue and adhere paper, frame out picture if you wish with coordinating paper, solid or print. Use the bulldog clip to attach picture. Done!
Next, paint your plaque, let dry. Sand if desired. hot glue the mini clothespin to the top. Attach ribbon or ric rac with a stapler or glue to the back. Clip picture on plaque using clothes pin. Done!
What is nice about these is that the pictures can be changed and depending on the scrapbook paper used to frame out the picture, it can have a whole new look! Head over to the linky party: Frugal Friday at Shabby Nest!
