During the project my friend commented how awesome it would be to have a whole wall of temple pictures. Of course, I went straight home and started planning how I was going to do it. On a tight budget of exactly $0 for craft and home decorating, I knew I was going to have to get creative! I couldn't afford the $30-$120 per picture it cost at the activity, so I starved my family for a week and used grocery money to make my own temple pictures for less!
Los Angeles (nice iPhone blurring technique)
Kirtland (Kami's favorite)
Nauvoo (we went there a couple years ago for a family reunion)
What a clever idea! A rubber-band around the paint can kept the whole can nice and clean which totally satisfied my "keep-my-projects-neat-and-tidy" ocd. Okay, that's not technically a form of ocd, but I have it anyway.
Here are my cut frames neatly resting on plastic cups on newspaper on my dining room table:
I didn't take pictures of staple-gunning the frames together, but I will next time, because it's not as easy as it seems. You definitely need a frame thingamagig that holds the frame perfectly square while you staple. The correct term may be "band clamp" but I'm not sure.
I can't wait to use this idea I found on PINTEREST to hang my pictures!
