One last item for the graduation table - also used to re-do part of my living room.
A framed hanger.
To make this I shopped the thrift store (again) and found a frame that I liked.
I tore the (ugly) art out of it, brushed on some cream paint, and added some twine.
For the clothes pins I stamped "fly" and "soar" on some and covered the rest with dictionary pages and tiny birds.
Another dictionary page pennant banner completes the look and ties it all together.
