Framed Fabric Display

Years ago, when I had my first baby, I gathered up a bunch of old frames, painted them to match the nursery, and filled them with pictures of my son as he grew. When the second baby came I took his pictures out so I could do the same for her. And never got around to it. They sat empty. Mostly because I never got pictures printed. With baby number 3 on the way I decided I needed a new plan for these old frames (afriad I would repeat the 'sit empty' senario). So I filled the frames with fabric scraps left over from the nursery set I made and hung them that way. 

Here's how:
1- cut fabric slightly larger than the open area of the frame and put it inside.
2- staple frames to strips of coordinating ribbon.
3. tie ribbon to a post (I used a mini curtain rod I had laying around).
4. Hang the rod on the wall.

Here is a display of framed fabric that Jaime did for her girls room. She painted all the frames white and hung them directly on the wall. Just another option.  I think it's darling! You can see more details on her project HERE

So if you're like me and have a few frames and fabric scraps that need put to good use (or your frames need a little dressing up while they wait for pictures), this is a great solution. And super quick!
