I saw this awesome wall art in a Pottery Barn catalog...it was just a bunch of picture frames, all different sizes, going all the way down a wall, with a piece of ribbon behind them.  I thought it was so cute and it looked really easy to make, so I decided to make myself a wall like that!  I changed it up a little bit by hot-gluing a boa (it took 2 boas to do 4 frames) around the frames!  I have a black & white picture scheme in my room, so I stuck to that, and I used vintage-style surfing photos for the pictures because I'm obsessed with anything surfing!  Here's what it looks like:

I really like that =)  Do your frames have the glass in them?  I can't tell... (I just wondered if that made them too heavy to hang up)

Thanks!!  Yep, they still have the glass in them!  They came with hooks on the back and everything, so they were meant to hang on the walls.

Sorry for being stupid... do you have them hanging on the hooks on the wall, or is it all supported by the ribbon... I guess I should'a asked that in the first place, eh?  Hehe!  I just don't wanna make it and be sleeping and hear *CRASH*

What I did was hang the ribbon at the top, then figure out where I was going to hang the pictures and poke holes in the ribbon at that spot, then hang a nail in the hole and hang the picture from it!  So far, nothing has fallen and it's been up for almost a year. Wink hehe  So, are you gonna make one?  I'd love to see pictures if you do!!
