DIY Clothesline Frame

DIY Clothesline Frame

I’ve always liked the look of these clothesline frame displays.  Not only are they totally adorable, but you’re able to change up the items being displayed whenever you choose.  This means you could get completely different “Display Looks” by simply changing the colours or theme of items being displayed.  You could even have it customized for certain events you host — i.e. mom’s birthday party?  How about add photos of mom growing up, special moments, …
