My best ideas are from craft stores. I saw these photo hangers in the framing department and couldn’t resist taking them to another level. Yes, I get to get out the glue gun again! I’ve used that gun more in 2016 than I have in the last 10 years I have owned it. My friend, Judy H, would be so happy!
Here’s how the project went:
This looks like a lot of supplies – I went a little “haywire”! You don’t need this much.
- Craft Paint – your choice of color – but I love the black chalkboard paint. brushes
- Wooden “tags” from the craft store. I bought mine in Michaels. 29¢
- Scrapbook Stickers
- small magnet for the back – if you would like to hang these from the fridge
- Art C Embellishments. These are binder clips with a small “s” hook added
- Glue Gun – YIPPEE!
First, paint the tags in the color you desire. Let dry!
When the tag is dry add the magnet to the back. These are the one’s I used and they worked fine for the refrigerator . If you know you want to hang something a bit heavy – just add 2 magnets.
Next, add the scrapbook stickers! I did use the glue gun for this. SCORE! I had fun at the store and over-bought stickers. This one package could make many hangers. I didn’t want to be limited creatively!
Here are the hangers. Like I said, just small binder clips with a hook.
This is my favorite photo of my beautiful God-Daughter, Julie and her hubby John. I love this project!
Think of the possibilities. You could make a hanger for each child with their initials. What about school artwork – report cards – new baby – graduation. There is no limit to imagination!
Have fun with this! Enjoy!
