Easy-Peasy Wall Art (For the non-DIYer)



I am not a DIYer. I lack the coordination to draw/paint/sew/build things without totally messing up.  I was trying to come up with an effective way to display some photos from our travels and this option only took me about 5 minutes. This is so easy it really does not require a tutorial, so here's just a quick list of what you need, how much it cost and how to get it done.

Materials needed:

1. Two small nails (had them already)
2. Hammer (had it already)
3. Rope ($1 laundry rope from the Dollar Tree)
4. Clothespins ($1 pack from the Dollar Tree)
5. 4 x 6 prints from kincos (about $2)

Total cost: $4

Step one: Determine how long you'd like your string to be. Tie knots at each end. Insert the small nails into the holes of each knot and then pull tightly.

Step two: Nail the string into the wall

Step three: Hang up your photos with clothespins.

THE END. SO FREAKING EASY IT WAS RIDICULOUS I EVEN MADE A TUTORIAL FOR IT. AND IT'S SO DARN CUTE.  /caps off.

Now go decorate your space.

I, like you, can be pretty hopeless when it comes to DIY. This, however, seems totally doable. I am so trying this over the weekend!
