Picture Frame Bills/Notes Display

4 Materials
30 Minutes

I’m the type of person that always likes to find a way of repurposing something before throwing it or giving it away. So when my son outgrew his “Spider-Man” phase I wanted to find a way to reuse the large frame from his Spider-Man print.

In our home study we use to have a cork board on the wall which I would use to pin up bills that need to be paid or important notes, school letters etc.

I decided to get creative and use the large frame from the poster print as a stylish & unique alternative.

The first step, was to remove the grass, print & backing from the frame.

Once I just had the frame, I then turned it over and used a pair of pliers to remove all the little metal tabs on the back (the ones the picture in place).

Next, I measured cut some string (I used thin nylon cord) to be a bit longer then the whole length of the frame (the longer side).

I then put a little loop at one end and then used a staple gun the attach it to the back of the frame just below the top corner.

Once that was attached I then pulled the string tight straight to the other side, tied another little knot and stapled it just below the other corner.

I repeated this process about half way down the frame, attaching a piece of string from one side to the other.

Once my two pieces of string were attached I then cut off the access and then the frame was ready to be hung on the wall.

I used some small wooden craft pegs to hang my bills and notes off the strings.

This was a super simple project but I’m so happy with the end result.

    Some wall paint is more durable than others. But if you feel that yours will be marred by the constant fingers touching and ink from various papers, I would suggest that you leave the frame in when recreating this project.

      That’s a great tip! Our walls are painted with wash & wear paint so if they get dirty I’ll just wipe them down ☺️
