DIY Home Project: Picture Frame with Hanging Pictures

Hey y’all!

It’s been pretty busy for me lately with my home based business but I had some time yesterday to do a DIY home project that I’ve been wanting to do! I am planning to do quite a few projects here in the near future and I hope to share them with you also! So this shall be the first installment of “DIY Home Project” here on the blog!

So, I saw some frames (at Target of course!) that had clothespins hanging from string to hang pictures from. I wanted a certain style for mine so I decided I’d try to make it!
I absolutely love how it came out! So I thought I’d share it with you all and show you how I did it!

First supplies:

I picked up a few black picture frames from a thrift store the other day for $1 a piece! They were a little scuffed but it was ok because I was going to paint them.

  • Chalk paint in your choice of color
  • Clear wax
  • Paintbrush
  • Sanding sponge
  • Twine or your choice of string
  • Clothespins
  • Wrapping paper in your choice of pattern
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun

Here’s how I did it:

1. First I painted the frame with white chalk paint. No sanding, I just painted right over it. Then I allowed that to dry.

2. After the paint dried, I took the sanding sponge and distressed the frame along the edges. DIY Home Project: Picture Frame with Hanging Pictures | HopeDreamJournal.com

3. Then I applied the wax according to directions and allowed that to dry.

4.Next I cut the wrapping paper to the size of my frame.

5. Then I cut the twine to the length I needed, wrapped it around the glass and hot glued it to the back. Maybe not the best solution but it worked! Lol

6. Finally I put the back into the frame and placed the clothespins on the twine!
And here’s how it turned out! I love it! I will hang some pictures from it and be able to change them out whenever I want! This will go on my entryway wall that I am giving a makeover! I hope to share more on that soon!
