Don't we all just love rocks? And don't we all just love black upholstery tacks? Ok, maybe it's a "No" for you on the tacks, but I have to say, I am digging these photo holder I made!
Check it out, that's me and my sister, wearing matching swimsuits ... I'm thinking it's 1966 here!
And here's the family getting ready to fly to Minnesota; that would be the photo on the right and the photo on the left is all the girls at Ports-of-Call in Long Beach CA.
Love the "Just look natural" pose going on here. No doubt my father was the photographer here.
And here's me and my sister again ... dressed in matching outfits and sweaters ... mom always said, "It was just easier that way". And although I am a year younger than my sister Kris, apparently I wore the bigger size ... go figure ... some things never change!
So cute don't you think? And easy peasy!
They make for a fun little sculptures too ... if I say so myself.
Gather a pile of rocks and clean them up, if needed. Then grab those black upholstery tacks, heavy black wire pliers and some super glue.
Drop a small amount of glue onto the rock, then arrange the tacks in place.
Cut a length of black wire and with pliers, make a swirl design at one end.
At the other end of the wire, make a very small loop and slip over one of the tacks. This little wire design can be just for decoration, or to help hold the photo in place.
Love these old photos ...
Love rocks ... love black tacks!
