I love the organized casualness of displaying pictures with clothespins. I like to paint the clothespins and/or embellish with scrapbook paper to coordinate with the party or holiday I am decorating for.
Last year, for my kids birthday parties I made a clothespin picture garland around a table. This year, I decided to consolidate the picture display into an empty picture frame.
Clothespin Picture Frame Tutorial
The first step was to spray paint the picture frame. I loved the gradient effect of the colors subtly overlapping. I love how this frame turned out and hope it will be making some additional appearances.
I used my Silhouette to make a happy birthday banner for the frame. I used different colors of card stock and the free font Elise.
I nailed nails along the perimeter of the frame and strung a piece of string from each side.
I painted some small clothespins in bright colors and attached my favorite photos to the string using the clothespins.
