Old Window Gift Idea!

This is what I made for my niece this year! There was only glass in one side of the I put her name {in vinyl} on that...and stapled some cute fabric that I bought at JoAnns in the back. Then I stapled chicken wire to the bottom half ...and made up some CuTe scrapbook paper covered clothespins {that I bought @ the dollar store} so that she could hang her friends pics... or whatever she would want... with them. Then drilled 2 holes in the top...and hung with ribbon! Super FuN & Easy!!


  1. sounds great but i can't see the picture?

  2. what a lucky girl! It turned out great! I made an attempt today to make one of your "Smiths" blocks... it turned out okay, but not near as wonderful as yours!
