Pretty Projects No. 5: Clothesline Frame with Mini Pennant




Different than your common clothesline frame I decided to add a bit more flair to it with my 'little ones' mini pennant:




This frame was originally gold then painted white and then finally spray-painted yellow. I used small eye hooks, picture wire and pliers.





 I screwed the hooks into the frame starting one-third of the way down because I knew that I wanted three 'lines' of photos. The second pair of screws went in halfway down and the third pair one-third of the way up from the bottom. Simply create a starting point and continue twisting and finish with the pliers until they are secure.






Next, thread the wire through the hook on one side and use the pliers to wrap it tightly and then thread through the corresponding side. I left my wire a bit loose across because I knew I wanted it to not look perfect, if you know what I mean :)





Simple as that! Now you can use any size clothespin you would like to hang your photos or postcards or whatever you plan to hang on your picture wire.



Now onto the mini pennant banner!!

Here are the supplies you will need: I printed 'Little Ones' out using my printer. The scalloped circle and mini flags were cut using my Silhouette. You can easily cut a thin rectangle out of scrapbook paper and clip the edges to resemble the little flags!



The rest is super simple! I folded the flags in half over the twine and glued them closed. I used my stamp pad to distress the edges of my mini flags and 'Little Ones' cutout.




Now using your clothespins clip your mini pennant banner to your picture wire on your frame. And your done.......ready to hang!


This creation went perfectly in our Master bedroom with the yellow accents and sweet pictures of our kiddos - it's fun waking up to their beautiful 'little' faces :)





Make it a beautiful day :)
