Not sure where to start? Take a cue from the displays below (none of which are cheesy, promise!)

Go Black And white

Constructed a DIY photo ledge, then filled it with tons of different black and white prints in varying sizes. We love the cohesive yet collective look, as well as the mix of personal pictures and artwork. Time to stock up on frames!

Get Crafty With Twine

If you prefer more of a rustic look, this is the project for you. Create a chic photo holder using pieces of wood, twine, and mini clips, (Note that there is some drilling involved.) It’s super easy to switch out favourite pics as often as you’d like, so no need to worry about choosing the perfect combo the first time around, or falling out with anyone!

Create An Oversized Gallery Wall

Hang big family photos (with tons of personality) in a uniformed pattern to make this stunning gallery wall. We bet it garners lots of attention from friends and visitors who swing by. Plus, kids will love seeing enlarged images of themselves as they walk down the hallway.

Make A Masterpiece Of Minis

Do you own an instant camera?

Place your instant photos in a small shadowbox frame, it’s an excellent way to showcase favourite memories even if space is limited. Adding captions ensures you’ll never forget where each photo was taken.
