*dorm room picture holders*

This week I decided to make my sister and her roommate Courtney some cute picture holders. My future sis-in-law Leatha gave me this idea. She made a Christmas card holder for hers.  This project is sooo easy and simple I can't wait to show you how to make one for yourself ;)

  • Cardboard  circle
  • clothespins
  • fabric or scrapbook paper   *I used fabric
  • hot glue gun
  • fabric glue
  • paint (optional)
  • ribbon

First you cut out your cardboard to the desired size....mine measured 15 inches

Then cut your fabric or scrapbook paper to cover the front

Next I covered my cardboard with fabric gluing it down with fabric glue  * *fabric glue I found works best

Cut off excess material from the back

Flip over and start hot gluing down you clothespins ** Also I used the ribbon make a loop so they can hang securely   (see 2 pics below)

Once you have glued the pins down you can start personalizing your picture holder....** I painted my pins and also stenciled  there names in the middle....** I also made a few fabric flowers and added them ...

My Sisters...
I painted the pins white and added fabric flowers  sorry the pic quality is bad it's took from my blackberry
Courtney...her roommate
I didn't add anything to hers just painted the pins blue and green

Both of them.....I love these and I know they will too! :)
