lets get crafty

A couple of months back I had a baby shower for  one of my good friends. I knew I wanted to get her something special but I could not decide for the longest time what that would be, until she pinned this. *who knew pinterest could be the new gift registry* My friend and I both share a love for crafts and diy so I knew this would be the perfect gift. 



The frame was purchased at hobby lobby as well as the knobs and they were both 40 percent off. Have I mentioned that I love hobby lobby? Well I do. A lot. 

The next step was finding chicken wire. I found this at Lowes. Unfortunately you can only get it in large quantities, so be prepared to have lots of crafts including chicken wire.

Attaching the wire to the frame was very simple. All that was needed was a staple gun. The trick is to cut it to size first then to make sure it is stretched out while you staple. 

The next step were the knobs. We used a drill to make the holes then placed them in.


I then purchased a couple of bows and a headband from this adorable etsy shop. *The shop lets you create your own style* I love how it all turned out.



As mentioned earlier. There was a lot of chicken wire. I had this old window (recently purchased at a local antique store) and decided it could use some of that chicken wire of mine. :)  I used the staple gun again and then used tiny clips from hobby lobby to secure my pictures.

Happy Crafting and Happy Friday!

  6. I've been wanting to do this for so long, but I was unsure of how easy it would be. (I'm not the craftiest person. Haha.) I love this, AND I love Hobby Lobby which is only a mile from my house. You've encouraged me to try it! Thanks for dropping by my blog this morning. Happy Friday!
