Frugal Friday #3: Displaying Pictures

It's no shocker that my husband is a Marine. It's also no shocker that military don't make as much as Hollywood claim they do. What is a shocker is how they make housing look like college dorms (ok not that much of a shock), But unless you buy a house or pay out your entire BAH and then some your stuck with a blah house.

We got our pictures done by a fellow Marine's wife. Now I've seen the idea floating around the interwebz and apparently, I'm the only one who doesn't want  "floating clothespins and pictures" on my wall! I decided to add a pop of color instead of the "fishline" look.

All I did was:
 1.) Tie the ribbon on each end to a thumbtack.
2.) Stick them in the wall, I gave mine some slack just so it'd "droop" a little lower.
3.) Hang your pictures and enjoy (:

*If your like me and haven't had clothespins laying around since the 90's, you can find them at dollar tree!*
