So, a few years ago I saw an idea on Pinterest to hang pictures from rope and clothespins. I loved this idea and since have tried a couple different ways to make it work in my house...
it didn't quite work out.
When I was living in Switzerland, I tried this idea with clothespins and blue twine on two rows but it looked, well, awful! I was so bummed. So when I moved I decided that I was going to come up with a way to make it work with the pictures I had and with the wall space provided.
I decided to omit the clothespins since I had so many pictures to work with and the whole thing just looked too cluttered. I also decided to use a much thinner rope, this time using white wick that I had in my crafting supplies.
To hang the pictures to the string of wick, I used sewing pins. It hides well and is not too heavy for the wick to support.
I also added a border or frame around the pictures to help them stand out and give them an arthouse feel.
Because the wick string is so lightweight, I was able to tack them to the wall easily.
Now I have a floating picture display that I really LOVE
and can admire without feeling like something just isn't right.
