Frugal Weekend Project

Over the weekend, I made a simple bulletin board without spending any money. WOO! HOO! Many of you will be familiar with the bulletin board look I chose to make.

I found an empty picture frame in the attic and stapled the chicken wire to the frame and painted it black.

I had leftover scrapbook paper.

I had clothes pins left-over from a project many moons, ago.

I had Mod Podge in the cabinet.

I cut the scrapbook paper into strips to fit the clothes pins.  I used the Mod Podge to attach the strips to the clothes pins.

Here is a close-up of one of the clothes pins after it had dried on the bulletin board.

Here is the completed project hanging above my oldest son's office desk area.

This was a great EASY Frugal Project, which did not take too much time!!

Enjoy your week!
