My craftiest craft has been sort-of-in-the-works since ordering a boat load of my Instagram photos from Printstagram. Within a week, I had 48 vibrant, square memories ready for something. And other than hanging from a “wire”, I hadn’t a clue of what that crafty something would be.
Months of staring at a stack of photos later… I decided to Google through my thoughts and hope to find exactly what I wanted. I landed on this photo and was almost equally as stuck. It’s pretty darn frustrating to know what you want, but not know how or where to find the pieces to get there!
Where would one find an oversized vintage frame for under 400 bucks? Clothespins? Better yet, weathered clothespins?! Oh and this weekend. I was determined to finish this project before the weekend was up, so Etsy and Amazon weren’t even options for this girl on a mission.
I ended up finding a huge stock of vintage windows (original glazing!) on Craigslist, conveniently, within a few blocks of my house. Twine and picture hanging hardware were acquired from Michael’s. Clothespins and spray paint from Zinger, a local gem. And then I hammered and nailed and hung my way to the most special thing I’ve ever made in all of my existence!
