Anyway, being that my daughter’s room is technically supposed to be a “ballerina room” I wanted a way to display her first pair of ballet shoes–and they’re just so darn adorable I wanted to look at them all the time.
I had plans of doing just a standard little hanger with a piece of old wood and knobs, but then I walked in my office and saw this basket full of leftover scraps of drop cloth and an old canvas. Lightbulb!
First I laid my strips out to see where I wanted them to overlap and how many I needed.
Then put glue on each end of the strip and glue it to the outside edges of the canvas.
I hung her ballet shoes with the glitter clothespins I made, added my favorite pair of her baby shoes, and voila!
I love this so much I think I’m actually going to make another one to hang pictures and messages in my kitchen. And since it’s on a canvas, you could use pins or thumbtacks instead of clothespins as well.
