Rotating Display

For this stylish, interchangeable hanging display we suspended a collection of neutral-toned Exposures frames from extra-wide, striped ribbons looped over a handsome faux-bamboo curtain rod from Smith + Noble. After hanging the curtain rod, we determined where we wanted the frames to fall -- at staggered heights, as this creates a less formal look. After filling the frames with photos, we turned them facedown on a flat surface and attached a length of ribbon to the center of the top and bottom edges of the frame with a staple gun (hot glue would work, too), allowing a "tail" to trail out from the bottom. The looped ribbon then slides onto the rod -- and slides off easily again when you are ready to change your display.

Tip: Choose shallow brackets so your rod sits relatively close to the wall -- if the frames hang too far away, they may swing a bit instead of facing straight ahead.
