HAIRBOWS - FRAMED - TUTORIAL!
I was chatting with a good friend of mine about our delimma on a CUTE way to display/store our evergrowing HAIRBOW collection!
(Don't pay too close of attention to the still taped light switch and door molding - my daughter is still in the process of remodeling that bathroom!!)
So we came up with this FUN IDEA - HAIRBOWS - FRAMED!!
I also sell them on my ETSY Shop
Just in case you don't want to go to the trouble of making your own! You can even pick the colors you desire!!
Bigger Picture Frame (the older the cheaper!!)
Chicken Wire (size depending on the size of frame, obviously!)
Step #1 -
Measure how far apart you need to drill holes for little pegs and mark the spots.
Step #2 -
Drill holes, mine are just a hair smaller in diameter that the bottom of the peg so that there is a tight fit (I had to hammer them in!).
Step #3 -
Put glue in the hole and on the bottom of the peg and hammer in.
Wipe down the frame really well so that the surface is ready to paint.
Step #4 -
Paint Away! I found that 2 coats did well.
(Go Green - I used an ice cream bucket lid as a palette!)
Step #5 -
Spray with the Clear Gloss. I liked Krylon brand, it dried in 10 minutes or less!
Step #6 -
Measure the Wire very carefully. Glue it in with a Glue Gun.
(Now don't make fun of my ancient glue gun:) I love it!)
Step #7 -
Attach the Picture Hanger.
Now hang the FUN project on your wall!!
(And once again, don't pay too close of attention to the lovely stenciling on the wall above the frame, I am still remodeling in that bathroom!!)
