Jewelry Frames

If you liked the post about our chalkboard frames you are going to love this.  It is very simple and easy, and you don't need a lot of stuff to do it.  Here are the supplies that you need for this project.
  1. Picture Frame
  2. Chicken Wire
  3. Spray Paint
Once you have got your frame all primed and spray painted your final color you get your chicken wire and you cut it out to the size of the hole inside of the frame, cut it a little bit bigger than that so that you can staple it in.  You may need a guy or someone to do this for you that knows how to work the staple gun.  You staple it in and then you have your jewelry frame.  Here are a couple that we did,  they are a lot like the chalkboard frames that we have done.

We took them to a local farmer's market to try our luck at selling them, hopefully we will!  If you want the tutorial on how to make the Flower Tutorial click the link and it will take you to the video that shows you how to make the flowers.

Locker Wallpaper

It is Back-to-School, that means shopping for clothes, and supplies for school, but when you go shopping do not forget one of the most important things that most of us need: Locker decoration!  We were shopping at Shopko and we were looking down the school supplies row when we saw this package of patterned paper that said "Magnetic Dr-Erase Wallpaper" I could not believe it.  It is the perfect thing if you are looking for an easy and cute way to decorate your locker.  I have tried it where I had to tape scrapbook paper onto the locker or use magnets to hold it up, and neither is a very good way to do it, so when I saw this I had to buy it and see if it really worked, we also bought some dry-erase markers.

This is the perfect thing to use if you decorate your locker, it sticks to most metal and does not fall off easily! Comes in all kinds of fun patterns, I cannot wait to use this in my locker.
