DIY CLOTHING TAG FRAME

MELBOURNE

Confetti Avenue by Charlotte Hartwell: DIY Clothing Tag Frame

I started keeping the tags off the clothes I bought because they were like little trophies displaying the epic reductions in price of my bargain purchases. Others were just such pretty tags I felt like if I threw them away I’d be throwing away a piece of the garment. This DIY has been years in the making as I’ve finally come up with a way to display them all

They’ve been sitting in a cardboard box for years (literally) and now they have a new home in this deep picture frame! This is a really easy DIY that you could use to store anything: movie tickets, mementoes from holidays, receipts. There’s a slit cut in the top of the picture frame so every time I buy something new, I can just pop the tag straight in!

First of all, you’re going to need an obscene collection of clothing tags, this IKEA picture frame, some pretty paper, sticky tape, and something to cut the wood of the frame.

Cut a slit in the top of the frame. I made mine almost 1cm wide and about 12cm long. If you don’t have the tools to do this you could always just pop the back on and off each time you want to fill it.

Take off the back and tape some paper to the back of the surround (mine came from a Kate Spade shoe box). You could even fill the entire frame if you have paper large enough!

Start slotting in the tags! Just make sure you put them in facing the right way (I had a couple of attempts to figure this out).

I found it helped a lot to shake the frame every so often to get the tags to settle and spread out a bit.

It’s currently sitting against the wall in my bedroom but you could always hang it if you have the wall space. It’s going to take many years to fill the whole frame!

  • Like a money box for fashionistas! I love this idea. In fact a rather more modest stack of labels from clothes bought on trips and at special moments might find the light of day again thanks to your inspiration!
