Sports Wall Display

Hello again! I’m Emily from and I’m excited to be here today!
I only have one son, and I was excited to do a project that was just for him!
He had a stack of sports pictures just collecting dust and I wanted to get them out and enjoy them.

While my sister, Ashlee, was here, she helped me come up with this idea.

Here is what you will need:

#1. Clothespins

#2. Spray paint (optional)

#3. Rope

(Remember that this is sold by the yard, not by the foot! I made that mistake! He He He! 🙂

#4. Screw Hooks

The first step is completely optional. I wanted a pop of bright green for my son’s room, so I got some bright green spray paint and let him paint the clothespins. He thought that was awesome!

Next, we measured out where we wanted the hooks to go. I wanted at least two rows so that we can add more pictures as they come. We measured 16 inches down from the ceiling and then 16 more inches down from that for the 2nd row.

Then my husband helped me to tape the end of the rope in a loop that we put around the screw hooks.

Hang the rope and then clothespin the pictures where ever you want!


Here are a couple more views.

Seriously, I know he’s mine, but isn’t he cute?

He’s a lot older now, and I miss having him little.

Go ahead and try it! You’ll be glad you did!
