Did you forget about mothers day? Haven’t had a chance to make something for Grandma yet from the kiddo’s? Here is a cute photo holder that you can whip up in less than 10 minutes (not including paint drying time, if you need to paint your frames).
These frames, believe it or not, were a hideous, bright, aggressive gold color when I picked them up at a yard sale. They’re also really deep, almost like a shadow box, so they stand up nicely on their own. They sat in my shed for months (maybe even over a year) until I finally grabbed them this weekend. I had seen chicken wire at the dollar store and suddenly inspiration struck. Boy, was I thankful I didn’t let my husband throw out that box of random craft stuff that I had been hoarding saving in the shed!
I spray painted them a matte black, and once the paint dried, I followed these three special simple steps (sorry, too much Special Agent Oso).
Once the chicken wire frames were assembled, I grabbed a couple of mini clothespins, covered them with a fun washi tape, and clipped on a cute picture of my girls. I like them so much, I just might keep them for myself. Wouldn’t this be a super cute way to display pictures at a birthday party? You could also add a backing, but I like the open back, it takes up less visual space.
On an unrelated note, don’t you just want to squeeze the cheeks off this cutie?
