Make Your Own Frames For A Wall Collage

This is an easy, really affordable way to make frames and arrange a wall collage.
Arrange a wall collage with homemade frames.
Just take a piece of scrap wood (you can have Lowes cut it to the sizes you need) and paint it any color you like. I did white.
Attach your photos using small screws or nails. Or you can glue it down using ModPodge.
Here is a recipe for a DIY version of Mod Podge (much cheaper) https://maggiemaysgifts.wordpress.com/2014/05/04/make-your-own-mod-podge/
This gives you this look.
Attach picture hangers onto the back. (very inexpensive from hardware store)
Next, cut out pieces of paper that are the same sizes as your frames. Put double sided on the back. This will allow you to play around with the layout to see how it will look.
Once you have it how you like it. Start swapping out the pieces of paper with the frames.
Until they are all up!

    I love this simple but clever idea. All the possibilities!! How about recycled barn wood, palates, old picket fence wood. Hmm!
