lace memo board frame






 i picked up this frame for the tip
 i painted it with white farrow and ball egg shell paint.

 then i got this vintage table table cloth and cut it to fit the back of the frame
 then using push pins i attached it to the back of the frame, pulling it tight so it does not sag.

 then i got some white bakers twine and tied a knot, and put the pin through it then pushed it into the frame, then i threaded it though the front of the lace, and pulled it tight and then attached it to the other side.


 i did this with a few more pieces of twine, then i printed off some pictures,  i wanted them to look like old polaroid photo, so using an app on my phone i turned them black and white, and put the polaroid frame around it and printed them on to glossy photo paper, then i used pegs to hang them from the twine.
