Toboggan Winter Photo Display

All ropes remain intact that were on the toboggan when I purchased it which included a cotton, nylon and even a childs jump rope.  It reminded me so much of my childhood when Id go tobogganing at a country farmhouse that was just outside of town.     
Supplies used; Cup hooks, pretty papers and cardstock, photos, paper punch. 
And of course a toboggan.  This one measures 4 feet long.
After affixing your photos onto the papers using double-sided tape or glue, paper punch two holes for hanging.  Screw two cup hooks into wood for hangers. 
Just think...if you tire of the photo display just remove from the wall and go sledding!
Another angle...
...and another...
...yet another.

After finding this great toboggan with worn blue trim paint, I immediately knew it would look great in our family room.  With only minimal supplies, I was able to create a unique photo display that catches your eye the moment you walk through the doorway.

Happy New Year to All!  Wishing you a wonderful 2009!

Keep on Junking,

I love it. This is such a wonderful winter display. I love how your projects have a simple, not over-done look, yet they have such a dramatic effect in a room.
Even the angle of your photography is terrific! Great stuff! Posted: 10:58 pm on January 9th

Lani - You better repo that toboggan back before it sells!

Happy New Year everyone!

That photo display is incredible! I'm with JunkArchitect, it's one of the coolest ideas I've seen, too. And you have such adorable photos to display. Love, love, love it.

What a wonderful picture display - love how the blue edge of the toboggan, the blue scrapbook paper choices and the worn wood all enhance the sweet photographs.
Great job on this!

What an awesome project. I can't believe you found such
a cute short toboggan. I thought they only came in the
super long size. Wow! are those kids cute. Love the
display. I can truthfully say, I would have never thought
of this idea.
