Wall photos are among the most common items to decorate any home. As you can choose any subject matter, theme, and mood to your liking, they prove to be versatile: a prime form of expressing yourself and your tastes in design while also sharing your life experiences as extensions of your home.
While the photos themselves are subject and statement, how you present them will lend a whole new dimension to wall art. Check out these three low-cost, easy DIY ideas on how to frame your photos for that extra edge:
Take a distressed wooden frame, several feet of twine, Polaroids, and clothespins to cobble together this piece of shabby chic art. Tie a few rows of the twine across the frame and simply “hang” your Polaroids up for all to see.
Framed bulletin boards
Use a burlap canvas back or a piece of bulletin board inside the photo frame. Simply pin the photos to the canvas. The high point of this setup – you can replace the photos at any time with no fuss at all.
Here’s how you can accommodate all the photos you have no frames for. Get a foam core board or other suitable substitute. Black or white boards should go with anything. Arrange your photos in a nice, clean grid. Stick them to the board with double-sided tape and, using a brush, paint over your new photo gallery with clear glue, sealer or finish.
