Frame walls look best when you use frames of different sizes, shapes, and colors, so don’t be afraid to step out of the box with this DIY project. There is no wrong way to do this! You can make this project super personal by printing out all of your favorite pictures and popping them into frames. Or, if you don’t want to use photos, this project works great with scrapbook paper or magazine cutouts. This is such an easy way to turn the things you love into art for your room. The possibilities really are endless!
- 4 or more assorted photo frames, different shapes and colors
- 4 or more printed pictures/scrapbook paper/magazine cutouts/printed quotes (1 per frame, sized for the frame it will go in)
- 4 or more nails or pushpins (optional)
1.Take the picture frames you’ve chosen to use for this project and arrange them into a cluster on the floor. Feel free to rearrange and mix them up until you have a pattern you like. An easy way to figure out how to arrange your frames is to start by lining your frames up into equal two rows. Then, adjust two of the frames so they are slightly off center. Using frames of different shapes and sizes makes your frame wall fun to look at. You can even position half of the frames vertically and the other half horizontally.
2.Take your printed photos and decide which frames you want to put them in. Then, one at a time, open up your picture frame and cut your printed photo to fit, using the cardboard photo insert that comes with the frame as your guide.
3.Once your picture is the correct size, place it in the corresponding frame. Repeat for the other pictures and frames. Finally, hang each frame one at a time using nails or pushpins and the hanging hooks on the back of each frame if desired, transferring the layout you created on your floor onto the wall.
