Junk inyour Drawers Picture Hangers

Alright. You have a bunch of photos. You don't have much wall space. Can't afford a frame. You like to upcycle. Okay, this should work for you. I'll tell you how to hang photos with a clip on earring and a thumbtack. It gives you a really contemporary look.
What you'll need:

photo (or any lightweight paper you would like to display)

clip on earring (you can find them in your jewelry box, thrift store, garage sale)

Thumbtack
