I just can’t seem to slow this crafting roll down, every where I turn it looks like a new idea is popping my head. This past weekend I received the CUTEST picture of my niece peeking from a tree and that needs a special home.

Monday, I stumbled upon a featured post at Tatertots and Jello with an amazing idea for quick and easy decor-friendly chore chart. All you need are time, an old frame and fabric that matches your style, done, done and done. [I really had no idea that I had so many unused frames stashed in this house!]

Completed photo/memo frame:

Isn’t that girl just as cute as a button?

This project took about an hour, and it was really simple; the hardest part was choosing which ribbon or string to use. There’s no use in me reinventing the craft wheel here, the instructions on how to create your own frame/memo/chore chart can be found here.

I chose to use spray adhesive over the hot glue when mounting the upholstery fabric to the cardboard back, it provided a smoother surface and cleaner lines than with the hot glue. When I was finished gluing all the ribbon in place, I sprayed the back again with adhesive and stuck on another cardboard cut out to cover up all of the “work”, so all you see from the back is cardboard and staples, nice and clean!

Happy Crafting Friends!

PS – Here is a look into my current large project:
