Total Cost - $2.00
Here is another idea I got from Knock-off Wood. It is super easy and cost very little to make. I have a small hallway in my house leading to the back room and I had been planning on making a picture wall from some time. Trying to design and purchase a large quantity of picture frames was never high on my to get/do list. I saw this idea from Ana and knew it would be perfect for the hallway without the expensive.
1x2x8 - .97 from Lowes
Clothespins – 1.00 for a bag of 50 at the dollar store.
Paint – leftovers
Screws for hangers
Scrapbook Paper – for Memories Sign
All you need to do is cut the 1x2 into the length you need for your wall, mine worked out to 4’. Separate the clothes pins, for painting. It is easy to remove and replace the small metal piece, I promise. Paint your rails and clothespins. After they have dried, reassemble the clothespins and glue them to the board. I glued mine every 6” alternating one pointing up and one pointing down. Screw the rails into the wall, be sure and mark your spot carefully so you will have a straight rail(not that I would have any experience). Now add photos! My son loves this, he can reach the bottom rail and every drawing he makes goes up.
For the MEMEORIES sign, I used 4 pieces of 12x12 scrapbook paper, and cut out the word memories with my Cricut at 9” in white. I glued the letters to the paper and tacked the paper to the wall.
