Photo Wall Ideas
DIY Family Photo Collage
The best photo wall ideas start with a theme. This collage is all immediate family and close friends. This is a quick and easy project!
- Wire or twine or jute string
- Nails, small and thin, preferably with a larger head so tied strings wont slip off
- Prints – my set has a theme – all family and extended family!
- Silver clips – found at craft stores or with office supplies
It’s helpful to measure your frame first, use this information to determine what size prints would look best. I printed this batch of family photos as 5in by 5in squares. I did request a 1/4 in white border from the lab – I love the old fashioned feel. My mom had a tin box full of white bordered photos for family – we’d love to dig through that box! Tempe Camera in Tempe AZ and Jones Photo in Tucson AZ are local favorite labs with professional quality printing.
Plan how many rows you’d like to string, space them according to your print sizes. Pound the nails, tie the string, and clip the photos. Viola! Ready to hang – enjoy!
