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.
Picture Frame Bills/Notes Display
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.
