A New Project
I have all these frames and I needed a new project.
I knew some would be chalk boards,
but these were going to be something different!
Of course these are for photos,
but I used them to display some vintage jewelry!
I apologize for the photos, I can't wait to get a new camera : (
I picked two of these up at a tag sale, for cheap $
They were on the gold-ish side,
so I dry brushed them with white paint.
I first cut a piece of thin plywood to size, these were 11x14.
I needed to shave a little off because my materials
wouldn't fit once I put it back in the frame.
(Make sure you leave a little room for materials,
but not too much, you want things to be snug)
I cut a piece of batting and some fabric about an extra
1/2 inch all away around, I did the same with the fencing.
Everything was held into place once
I bent the edges of the fencing around the board.
Once it was in the frame, I stapled the board to the frame in a
few spots (around the back), just to make sure it stays put!
Then I cut a piece of pretty wallpaper from one of my wallpaper
sample books and glued it to the back (with a glue stick)!
I found these cute little clothes pins to attach the photos with!
Here's the other one I did, again the picture isn't great.
I have already sold them both, so I guess they are a success!
Time to make some more!
Thanks for checking it out!
