DIY School Photo Display

Looking for a way to show off your children's school photos? 
A little elbow grease, paint and hot glue is all you need!

I've been eyeing the cute skinny photo holders at Michaels and 
didn't want to fork over the $20 + for one, even with a discount code, 
mine was much cheaper to make and it always feels great to tackle
an easy DIY project!

All you need is ONE wooden picket fence post (under $2), 
paint - I used Waverly White Chalk Paint I had on hand, and a bag of clips, 
you can use wooden clothes pins too if you'd like.

You can trim your board down but it's not necessary, all depends on how many photos you want on your board. I sanded down the edges quickly and then slapped on a coat of Chalk Paint. Warmed up my hot glue gun and stuck my clips down. 

I screwed two short screws into the back and added a bit of wire for easy hanging on our family command center. You can use the top of a soda can as well but I didn't have any on hand.

Easy peasy and way less than $20, a total win in my book!
