Photo wall

  • I would start by gathering up frames that you want to use. Use various shapes and you don't have to use the same color or style. Once you have them, lay them on the floor to figure out how you want to arrange them. Of course if you have photos in mind that you want to use, place them in the frames. I then like to use craft paper to trace around the shape of the frames and mark on the craft paper where the hangers are. Then use painters tape to stick the frames on the wall in the same configuration you have on the floor. Once you've made your adjustments and you like the way that the wall looks, add your nails, remove the paper and hang your frames. I hope that is helpful!

  • There are several different ways to achieve this. One way is to have each photo in its own unique frame and hang them on the wall, grouping them close together to create a visual connection with all the photos. My mother-in-law had this on her living room wall... floor to ceiling... she just kept adding to it over the years until it grew and grew. Another approach is to have all the pictures in the same style frames, (or different frames all painted the same color) and hang them in rows and columns in a very orderly fashion. Which ever way you decide, I'd recommend checking out this post I wrote a couple weeks ago on how to hang a group of pictures with even spacing. I found a HUGE secret tip!!
