DIY photo frame

Have I mentioned before how much I love doing FREE projects? Yes, I probably have. Here is what I have been up to today.

  • One really cool frame from my mom's garage
  • some wire from my husbands stash
  • cup hooks we still had in our junk drawer from another project
  • metal clips and photos from my scrapbooking supplies

I just measured and marked where I wanted the wire and then drilled some tiny holes in the frame. I twisted the cup hooks into the holes and then wrapped the wire around them.

I love that the artwork and photos are easily changed!

I've also added the linky followers button to my sidebar. Since GFC is going away soon for some I don't want to lose contact with any of my new friends and followers. I hope you'll join up with me, I enjoy making new friends.
