have some pictures that need hanging?

i saw this cute way to hang pictures somewhere. i thought it was such a cute idea so i gave it a go! i am so glad i did because it really turned out cute and i want to make more!

what you need

framed pictures

curtain rod

ribbon

staple gun

1. cut ribbon twice as long as you want your frame to hang and add about 3 inches extra (you will loose the extra inches where it is stapled behind the picture frame and where it wraps around the rod).

2. with the curtain rod on the ground, wrap ribbon around rod and staple with a staple gun to the back of your picture frame.
note - make sure your measurements of the ribbon length and where they are stapled to the back of the frame are exactly the same on each side so your frames don't hang crooked.

i tied a bow above lucy just because she is a little princess

super cute tanya. i saw that at my friend amber's house and thought i would try it. she just tied the back of hers with a little eyelet looking thing so they did hang crooked but it was really cute that way. i love it...now i'm going to enlarge the pics so i can really see what it looks like!

It looks very nice, but I think the laces are too big. I'll do it in my office, here at the viagra online building, because my wife won't let me do any change on the house's decoration.
