I wanted to figure out a way to hang the Sailor Moon GashaPon keychain swing set my very good friend had sent me as a gift. I have seen so many tutorials on glass-less frames and the many things you can do with them. So I decided I will display my set like that!
Here's what you will need :
- a picture frame to fit your set or as many as you want to hang (mine is a 5 by 7 frame)
- scrapbook paper (the thicker the better! Thin ones will pull and your set won't have enough strength to hang on it)
- an x-acto knife or any object to make a slits
-twist ties or metal wire
First you take out the glass in the frame and trace it on your scrapbook paper to get the exact measurement.
Next place your paper inside and make sure it is snug enough to push forward when you close the frame in the back or else it will be loose. More card bords and extra paper can be used to help add a thicker backing to the inside of the frame.
Place your set where you want them on the frame. Do you want them lined up? All around? And draw the place above the keychain and below the keychain closure so you know where to thread your wire.
Last cut the slits (as tiny as you can) on the lines you drew and thread your wire through. Hold the keychain with your hand as you do this to each one so the keychain will be snug on the paper and twist the wire closed. Place your backing to the frame back and you are done!
Now you can enjoy your keychain set like a piece of artwork! Set it on your desk or hang it on your wall like I did.
If you are going to throw the glass of the frame out be careful and wrap it up well in newspaper before you throw it out in the garbage so no one will get hurt. Or you can even find another DIY project for it!
