Vintage frames for Tim's 12 tags of 2012

 I came across this set of frames at a second hand type shop and bought the pair off them before they had time to spruce them up...They had just arrived and I wanted them as original as possible.  So I washed the years of dust off and gave them some extra staples for stability and then added the twine to peg my tags onto.  I am very pleased with the final result and have made this project pride of place in my passage for all to see.  I don't know where my hubby is going to hang his car keys when he gets home as that is where the hooks were previously, but hey those can go on a shelf (and often do) so I figure he won't mind too much!

The back of the frames, I just eyeballed the string, I did not measure as I stapled.
