Instax Hoop

In looking for a fun way to display some of my Instax Mini photos, I came up with this:

I just sewed some tiny clothes pins onto an embroidery hoop art piece and voilà!  A pretty as a picture display of pretty pictures!  This one is hanging on a door in my kitchen.  I am contemplating which door to adorn next as I write this.

To make one for yourself all you need is a 12" wooden embroidery hoop and a scrap of fabric to cover it.  Embroider something in the center if you are so inclined, or attach a few more clothes pins there instead.  I used 11 mini clothespins, which are sewn onto the fabric.  You can actually fit 1 or two more if you would like the pictures to overlap a bit more, or 1 or 2 less to space them out a bit more.  Play around to get the look you love, and display those pretty pictures!

Happy Saturday, friends.
