DIY Decorative Picture Clip Tutorial




It's kinda been a New Year's resolution of mine, to display pictures more around my home.
I feel like I take all these great pictures of my kids and RARELY print them out, and display them!
I'm all about a cute frame, but they take up SO much room, and usually only hold ONE picture...
So here was my solution.
A quick picture clip!

I just sprayed my large unfinished clothes pin, with white spray paint.


Sanded the edges a bit... ran some distress ink on the edges, applied a powder blue vinyl decal...
and that's it!


So simple and fun!
I love mine!
(I need to get a cute b&w picture of the baby!)


I put mine here, on my entry way table.  I like the height it gives too!


I've seen people stamp or use paper,  on the front of their clips,  for decoration too!
Let your imagination run wild, ladies!

Happy Tuesday!

  6. I love that! I think you are so right about displaying pics. I never print them off. I don't have the space for all the frames so this is a perfect solution. Love it.
    Thanks.

  18. Super cute as always! I love the vinyl touch. You are going to feature this right? (studio 5)
    It would be cute to put the stain tips clipped in this. Maybe laminated or something.
