School Photo Display

January 16, 2017

We recently got our school photos returned. This School Photo Display was created from items on hand. I joined the January Craft Room Destash Challenge. The rules were to use craft items you had hoarded and spend less than $10 if necessary. No problem, right? I think I am like most crafters and I hoard EVERYTHING related to crafting. I didn't need to buy a thing.

I created the above School Photo Display from items I got at a past SNAP conference. 



  • Elmer's Paint Pen (Gold)
  • Large Clothespin (Heidi Swapp)
  • Gold Glitter Words (Heidi Swapp)


Unwrap all items. Start with the large clip.

remove clip
Disassemble the clip.


paint clip
Using the gold paint pen, paint the spring part of the clip.


place sticker
While the clip is apart, place the chosen stickers on the wood.


replace clip
Once the paint is dry, put the clip back together.


I originally designed this project to stand on end as pictured above. And it works that way. While taking pictures, I was having trouble getting it all in frame and started fumbling around with it.


I ended up with the clip on its side and actually like it displayed this way much better. Here's to happy accidents!

Oh wow this turned out super cute!

I have a few of these large clips. I need to use them more cause they really are so cute.

Very cute idea!

Cute idea! Those large clips are so versatile. Visiting from Crafty Destash.

What a fun way to display school pictures. I would have never thought to color the spring with the gold marker. Very clever.

I love that giant clothes pin. It's so cute and what a perfect idea to use it to display a photo.

I love the simplicity and beauty of this project. It is a nice way to display pictures and mementos.

Oh how cute is this! And a great tutorial. I hope you will come over and link at the The Fabulous January Party! This months it's all about DIY's
