Simple, Inexpensive & Fun Wall Art for a Child's Room

I have been wanting to put the alphabet up in my little boys' room for a long while now, but didn't know exactly how I wanted it.

This is what I finally came up with...

I used a set of alphabet flash cards, small clothespins, a can of Krylon's "banner red" spray paint, twine, and a few nails of course.

First, I spray painted 26 clothespins red. After the clothespins were completely dry, I strung them onto two pieces of twine. I then measured and made sure my marks were level. Then hung the clothespins and twine by simply tying the twine to the nails.

So simple!!!

The flashcards were hung and my little boys love it!!!
