Fun idea for all your wallet size pictures

This is what I came up with to display all my wallet size pictures I have been given throughout the years. Pretty neat huh? Total cost for this project was $7 and about 2 hours of labor. This frame was purchased at Hobby Lobby for $6.99, original price was $69.99...yeah I scored! The ribbons, glass bead pins,cork board, and black and white toile fabric I already had. The Family plaque was also purchased at Hobby Lobby a while back, I just framed it with a dollar frame from GW(Good Will) that was sprayed white. We added the stripes to my hallway about 1 month ago, the same day we painted my daughter's room. I love it so much better now.
Here's a close up of the ribbon and the glass bead pins. If you missed the how to make the glass bead pins, you can find it here.

Here is what the whole wall looks like. On the right is my husbands family, on the left is mine, and in the middle all the grand kids combined.

These are my parents and my siblings.

Here are my husbands parents and siblings.

and the left.

This is my coat closet. Pretty on the outside, but not so pretty on the inside.

Finally, here is a picture of the way the frame looked before it met Miss. Heirloom White.

So there you have it, how to display all the wallet size pictures you probably have stashed away in a shoe box. Let me know what you think of my project, I hope it was worth the wait.

Thank You for stopping by.

Nice idea, Lilia. I have a long hallway where we displayed all our pictures ~ it makes for a great gallery. I had to take it down because we went on the market, but I've got great plans for the next house's family wall.

I love it, what a great idea ! I really like the hallway, it reminds me of my bedroom.

Hi Lilia,
I love the idea. And what a great deal on the frames. Your hallway looks absolutely marvolous. I love the stripes. Thanks for sharing. Oh! And every time I go to Target I keep forgetting to look for the glass beads. I still want to make those. Thanks for all the great ideas. Have a wonderful Monday.
