|Pier 1 Frame|
Being the crafty geek that I am, I decided to make it myself. It was as easy to make as it would have been to order it, and it cost less than shipping. The greatest thing about this project is that you can customize it to fit your style.
An old picture frame--I found mine for $2 at a thrift store
Twine or wire
Miniature clothes pins
Remove the glass and backing from your frame. Paint your frame your desired color. If you are going for a monochromatic look you can also paint your twine or wire to match the frame.
After your frame is dry cut 2 long pieces of twine to run the length of your frame and 3 to run across. By doing this you will have room for 9 smaller pictures. You can do more or less depending on the number and size of the pictures you want to display.
Mark the back of your frame where you want to attach the twine/wire.
Staple the 2 longer pieces to the frame first.
Weave the twine running across the frame between the two longer pieces and staple in place.
Place a clothes pin in each square to hang your pictures.
If your frame doesn't already have one, hammer in a sawtooth hanger.
|A package of sawtooth hangers is around $1|
