Chicken Wire Picture Boards

Here is another fun, cute way to display pictures. I just took cabinet door frames and stapled chicken wire in the middle with a staple gun. With the clothes pins, I traced around each clothes pin on some scrapbook paper and cut out with an exact-o knife. Then distressed the edges with an ink pad then glued it on. Then I tied a cute ribbon around. I thought they turned out really cute considering they were regular old clothespins. These were really fun to make and they really didn't take long at all. The possibilities are endless!

Magnetic Plaques

These are fun to make. You can make them for anywhere in your house, whether it be in your living room or your kids rooms, they are sooo easy to make. They have a ton of cute scrapbook paper out there now, so the possibilities are endless. I just cut the paper to the size of the plaque, then ripped all 4 edges and distressed the edges with a black and brown stamp pad. Then, glued the paper to top of plaque, nailed on metal sheet, and placed vinyl lettering on bottom. I also drilled 2 holes @ the top and strung tulle, and tied a bow. They were super easy and super cute!

cupboard door chalkboards

These are a cute inexpensive way to use or reuse new or old cabinet doors. These I found at a discount building store in Payette. They had dozens of shapes to choose from. Some, I put fence insulators on for the cabinet handles, and some I put coat hangers on. They all turned out sooo cute.

Childrens art gallery sign

These are a fun way to display your kids art pictures they make for you. You can buy these little clips @ Walmart for really cheap and glued them on. I stenciled the words: "art gallery" on these, but you can also use the phrase "Look What I Did", or "Our Family" hang black & white pictures from them. You can customize these to whatever you little heart desires!
