{Beadboard} Photo Display Tutorial

Just in case you missed it... here is my tutorial for making these FuN beadboard photo displays that I posted here:

{DIY} Beadboard Photo Display

First I cut a piece of beadboard to the size that you want. {mine was 9 1/2" x 10" ...and I used a 4 x 6 photo} 

Then... trace your photo on the foam board {that I bought at the dollar store}...
Then cut out with exact-o knife...
Then I used  spray adhesive...and sprayed my  foam board with a good even coat...and stuck my photo on...
Then on the beadboard I painted on stain over the whole board...then wiped most of it off except for in the cracks...
Then stuck the foam board to the beadboard with E-6000 adhesive...
and tied a piece of netting around the bottom.
And there ya have it!!  A super easy inexpensive gift for any parent or grandparent on your list!
