Quick Wall Filler

I had a big wall I needed to fill with something and only $20 to spend. (Sigh.) It was time to get creative. Well, sort of. This project was super easy, and I don't know how many creative juices were flowing.

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought a 50% off, damaged frame. While there, I found a cool decorative ball and used my 40% off gift certificate they send you online. And just like that I spent my $20. (Another sigh.)

So I called Matt's mom (aka, Gigi) and asked if she had any smaller frames she wasn't using. She did, and Jeb and I went over to get them. After nearly killing herself with falling boxes, Gigi dug around in a closet and found me several frames. Sweet. (Thanks for risking your life, Gigi.)

I came home, got out some ribbon, my new purchases, and used frames and pulled this together.

I love surrounding myself in beach pictures. That one of the girls is my favorite. Such sweet sisters...

onitWhere do you keep finding room for all these great projects? You are so full of great ideas. I LOVE using empty frames, we have several "one of a kind" frame hangings too. It's lovely and the pix are GREAT! Keep em coming!

I love that idea!

I'm actually looking for an odd size frame. Maybe I should try Hobby Lobby for a damaged one! Good tip!
