Just in time for Thanksgiving I made this fun wall hanging.
I am trying to fill my house with photos of family and friends.
This is a creative way to make a photo display.
I can change out the pictures as often as I like.

I made my version a bit differently.
|4" high by 3' long by 1/2 inch thick|
I found my wood at Lowes. I bought them for around 5.00 each. I took some stain that I had in the garage and stained both sides of the wood.
My board is much smaller than the one over at Shanty 2 Chic. So I had to figure out how to shrink down the letters. Thank you Matthew for figuring that out for me. Next I printed them out onto cardstock. I Mod Podged them onto the board. I left enough space between the letters to put the clips.
I bought the same clips as Shanty 2 Chic. I found them at Michaels. They are a bit pricey, so I used a coupon.
My wood was not thick enough to use upholstery tacks, so I cut the ends off brads and glue dotted them onto the corners. You could use buttons too. But I have tons of brads so that worked for me.
Now after I hot glued all the clips on I thought it was good to go. But my son went to drill holes for the hanger and they began to pop off. So I got some Super Glue and glued them securely in place.
I used black yarn for the hanger.
Then I just printed some pictures of family and friends!

Have a blessed day.
