Step 1. Flip your frame over so that you are working on the backside. Use hot glue to attach your twine on both sides of the frame. Make sure to leave the twine a little loose so that it hangs a bit.
You can fit three rows in a traditional 8x10 frame. Allow the hot glue to dry before proceeding.

Step 2: Once the glue is dry, flip the frame over and use mini clothes pins to hang your images on each row of twine. You can add a hook to the back of the frame or lean your display on a shelf for all to enjoy!

Bonus tip: For a modern twist, try a metal (or black) frame, wire instead of twine and paper clips to hang your photos.
