Hanging frames

If you have any frames whose propping flap (does that thing have a name?) is broken or if you’ve run out of room on your tables, here’s an easy fix. All you need is ribbon, a hot glue gun and some nails or removable hooks.

First, decide where you want the picture to hang on your wall. This will help you determine the size of ribbon you’ll need.

Then turn the frame over so the back of the frame is facing you. Fold your ribbon in half with the ends at the top of the back of your frame. Hot glue the ends into place.

Then flip them over and hang them however you like. I had a shelf that had hidden hooks so I hung mine there.

But you can get as creative as you want. If you hang them from a nail or a 3M removable hook, you can just decorate the hook.

I hot glued a pebble directly onto my hook to create this look.

The nice thing about these is that you can do so much with them. You can make the ribbons any length you want, use decorative ribbons and do all kinds of things with decorating the hook.

Have fun!

  2. I love the pebble glued to the hook. Very cool! A friend has a similar display all hung from a curtain rod on the wall.

  3. Jill, I love looking at Maggie May’s. I told Dad you inherited both A.Ginny’s love of crafting and G.Weetie’s practicality. Grandma could find a use for everything and was great at adapting. xoxo

What do you think? I would really love to know!!
