Picture Plaques

I have wanted to show you all these picture plaques I made but kept forgetting to take pictures of them.  I finally took pictures of them this weekend.  I have no clue why I didn't get pictures of these when I was making them.

I found a picture from AC Moore that looked similar to the before pictures.  I also bought a package of small clothes pins. 
I spray painted all of them.  Then sanded the edges and put a touch a brown paint on the corners.  Then I used a glaze to make them a little antique looking.
I am definitely planning on making a few more.  The reason I used the clothes pin were so I could update the pictures when I wanted.


I am linking this up to a party this week.  If you want to check out more crafty projects click on the link below.

those are so cute. I really like them. They would be really good for all kinds of things like lists or displaying scrap fabric that I love in my craft corner for inspiration!
