DYI Artwork

I'm so excited about my latest DYI project!

Abel picked this frame up at a flea market years ago and spray painted it black for me. I've had it in our room, on top of a bookcase and leaning up against the wall. But, I wasn't ever completely happy with it there.

Then, recently I've been thinking about all the lovely Save-the-Dates, wedding invitations, baby announcements, and even birthday party invitations we receive--some are just so beautiful that I'd love to display them but our fridge is just a mess.

So...I thought I could use the frame as a display! Sorry I couldn't get a full shot of our dining room but the room has yellow walls (obv!) and a cool black and white carpet. I ordered a spool of yellow and white bakers twine from InspireLovely on Etsy and Abel used eye hooks to make three rows of twine for me.

I grabbed some of our cutest recent announcements and invitations and put them up using some fancy paperclips I also had on hand.

I'm so thrilled with the final product and can't wait for our next invitation/announcement/Save-the-Date to arrive so I can add it to the current display or switch something out!
