I was pretty happy after I sat back and looked at my family photo wall, so I decided to blog about it.  My friends seem to ask me for tips all the time on the subject, and my friend Jenny and I are known for rearranging photo walls at our mutual friend’s homes.

If you want to see more, I’ve blogged about How To Arrange Art and I also did a post on a DIY Photo Wall Décor Idea that got a lot of interest on Pintrest.

Here are some ideas I hope you can use if you want to create something similar.

  • I decided to stick to three types of frames only: black, silver, and dark wood.
  • I used all black and white photos because I thought it made it look more modern.
  • I used a variety of frame sizes: 8X10, 5X7, 4X6
  • I kept one horizontal imaginary straight line all the way across the wall and placed the photos above or below the line.
  • I started with the larger frames in, and worked my way out using smaller frames.
  • I used a photo mat for most of the photos which created a little more dimension.
  • Social networking sites are a great resource to get family photos if your collection is lacking.
  • Most importantly, Command Strips are DEFINITELY the way to go when hanging ANY picture frames.  No holes!!! You can get them at any retail store like Target or Walmart for a few dollars.  It also makes it easier, because you don’t have to worry about aligning a nail and frame hook.

Here’s another picture.

Hope this helps! For more picture hanging tips, click here.

Here’s another quick idea. I love taking photo booth pictures.  Instead of hiding them in drawers, display them with a matted frame and decorative scrapbook paper!
