Family Picture Board

Do you live in the same town as your relatives?  I do not, and have a hard time remembering what they all look like.  Years ago I made this lovely hanging board at a church function and decided to convert it into a "Family Picture Board".  When relatives send us photos of themselves or their children I clip them up.  My kids have loved getting to know grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins this way.  If your family lives close this is also a fun way to remember fun family get-togethers and promote quality family relations.

My pictures are attached by a series of clothespins.  You could use any variety of board to display your photos (i.e. magnet board, ribbon board...).

Darling idea! My 12-year old is always looking for projects and this will be ideal since she can even make it hersel!. What are the dimensions of yours and what wood is the frame made of? {Can you tell I don't want to think too hard?]

Each wood piece is 21.5 inches long, 1 inch wide, and 1/2 inch thick. I cannot remember what kind of wood it is made out of. I painted the project by dabbing white and green paint over each wood piece to give it some depth.

Good luck!
