table top chicken wire message boards
I used 8x10 picture frames with chicken wire stapled to the back.
Once the chicken wire was attached, I spray painted the entire thing.
For the white one, the staples from the chicken wire were showing through so I hot glued white ribbon to cover them up. I love the way it turned out.
On the black one, the sharp wire edges were hanging out so I hot glued ribbon to cover them up. I think it adds a nice finished touch.
Then I used regular clothespins (with book pages deco-pauged to the top) to hold a gift card.
I bought these easels at Hobby Lobby to hold the message boards.
Hopefully the teachers will like them. At least they'll like the gift cards anyway! :)
