DIY Simple Farmhouse Style Photo Display Ideas

Good Morning!

Today I am sharing some simple diy projects that I worked on to display some favorite photographs in my craft room.

I really like that I can easily change the photo's out with all of these projects as well. 

They are budget friendly and I am really pleased with how they turned out. 
(even if I switched gears and changed my mind when I was working on them)

The first project I used a welcome fall sign from dollar tree. 

 (They usually carry these type of signs with the different seasons, but something similar could be made with a piece of scrap wood with a little bit of modification for a hanger and so on)

 I intended on painting it so I used sandpaper to lightly go over the sign since it had a bit of a sheen to it, then I started to paint it a pretty shade of turquoise.  
However I ended up changing my mind and chose to wrap it in faux barnwood peel and stick wallpaper that I had on hand instead.  I am so glad I made that decision. 😉

Then I drilled 2 holes into the top of the sign because I wanted to add a decorative hanger to it,  and using some jute string I placed one end of the string in one of the holes and then tied a double knot to secure it in place.  

Then I strung on some pretty natural colored wood beads that I had purchased. 

After I had the amount of beads that I wanted and liked the look of it,  I strung the other end of the jute string through the other hole and secured it in place.

The next thing I did was glue some small sized wood clothespins onto the front to hold my photographs.

Then to dress it up a bit more I made a small blessed vinyl decal and placed it onto the sign, and I am loving how it turned out!

So fun.

For the next project I used another dollar tree sign and was sure that I wanted to paint this one so I started by using some scrap sandpaper to get the raised glitter off of the front of the sign.

Then I started painting using white acrylic paint.

After I had the coverage that I wanted, I used some black paint to lightly go around the edges and different areas of the sign to give it more of a distressed and worn look.

Then I added a small clothespin using e6000. 

I decided to use a pretty picture of my little yorkie when she was a pup on it, so sweet! 💕

The next project that I worked on I chose to use this large basket.
I thought it would be a fun backdrop for some photo's.

I simply used some jute twine, added some wood beads and glued a clothespin on the twine every 5 beads and after it had dried I tied it onto my basket. 

I can easily remove it if I decide to do something else with the basket and I think this makes a fun
photo display.

I have the video linked below if you'd like to check it out in better detail, I also have the peel and stick wallpaper and beads linked below if you'd like to look into those further.

If you haven't subscribed to my YouTube channel I post new video's weekly. 

Have a great week!!
