DIY Christmas Gift - Framed Picture Board

One of the designers I work with came up with this really creative DIY Christmas gift for her daughter. She wanted to come up with a creative way for her daughter to display family photos, recipes, notes, in her new apartment. She found the frame at Goodwill and spray painted in Glossy Black. Then she wrapped a scrap piece of foam core we had lying around the office in a new floral fabric by Xorel. Xorel is super easy to clean, maintain and it's tackable. We use it for a number of commercial projects at our office. Then she used picture frame wire to create the "clothes line". The final touch are the cute, rhinestone studed, spiral hair clips she found at CVS. She squished them together so they formed a round paper clip and used that to clip the photos onto the line. So smart! I have a few DIY Christmas gifts up my sleeve. Once I get around to putting them together, I'll make sure to post the new projects.
