[so cheap, so easy]: Jute Twine Art

For those of you who missed my guest post at UCreate, today is your lucky day, cause it's back, baby!  My jute twine art is cheap and easy aaand super chic! I hope you like it!
Here's what you'll need:
-  Frames (I used these frames from Ikea, but anything with a mat will work.)
-  Jute Twine
-  Tape (I used painter's tape, because it can be removed easily from the mat if needed, but any strong tape will work.)
-  Poster Board for Background
-  Paint for Background (I used Restoration Hardware's Silver Sage.)
-  Paintbrush

Now for the whopper of a tutorial: 
one) paint your poster board, and cut it to size; two) tape the twine to the back of the mat in the pattern of your choice; three) assemble your frame, and hang it up! Yup, that's it. When I said easy, I wasn't joking.
