Photo walls are becoming incredibly popular for home decor. Who wouldn’t want all their favorite photos displayed for all to see?!
When I was shopping for instant cameras, I noticed kits selling for $15+ that included everything needed to hang your photos on your wall (which was typically just string and clothespins). To be honest, I almost bought one of these kits, but then realized how easy it would be to make myself with things I already have at home!
All you need is:
- Your beloved photos
Clothespins would probably work better, but sadly all I had were paperclips, which work just fine (just not as secure). I’ve also noticed people using little light strings instead of regular strings, which looks fantastic, but I just decided to go with what I already have.
Step 1: Measure out the size you want your photo wall to be and how spaced out you want each row. For instance, my rows are spaced out 7 inches from each other and are 36 inches (3 feet) long each. Make marks where you want each pin.
Step 2: Now cut your string to the length you measured and marked on the wall, but MAKE SURE you add an inch or two for slack and enough string to tie a knot around the pin with.
Step 3: Tie your strings to the pins, and make sure to tie them tight so it cannot become loose! You may have to double knot, especially if you’re using a thick string like I am.
Step 4: Hang up your photos with your clips or clothespins! Your photo wall is complete, for now! As you take more pictures, you can always add more rows.
I haven’t taken many photos myself, and hope to add more rows soon.
