When you have a lot of memorable photos on hand, why not transform them into paintings for decorating your home? A photo collage still looks trendy. But getting that painting effect makes your memories into works of art.
Once you’ve selected the right pictures, there might be some confusion about how to display them. You can browse this site for some great ideas. We’ll also discuss some unique methods below:
Just came from a vacation and have some small prints from your photos? Hanging them up on a wall might not be very interesting. They won’t catch the eye, and looking at all those small photos separately is just too much work. But what if you could arrange all the small pieces together to form a work of art? All you need for this is some string and the photos themselves.
Think of the photos as dots in a drawing and the strings as the lines connecting the dots. You can then use the combination to form a definite shape, like a world map. An easier way to go is to just arrange the photos in any haphazard way and use the string to connect them. This will create an abstract art piece that goes well in any room.
Make A Display Frame
Another unique idea for small photos is to put them all in one frame. This will make an attractive display frame without too much effort from your end.
All you need are the photos and just the frame. The glass and back of the frame are not part of this project. So, you should remove them beforehand. Next, take copper or steel wire and staple some strands of it to the back of your frame. You can choose to make a random pattern or hang the wire in straight lines.
After this, you can get some clothespins and hang up the photos to get a charming display. If you want a more rustic appearance, use twine instead of wire.
The Instagram Effect
Many people put a lot of effort into making sure that their Instagram display is attractive and colorful. You can do the same for your home by utilizing your Instagram background photos for the decor.
Print out the photos you want and glue them on small wooden blocks. You can attach them to the wall. It’ll be like seeing your Instagram screen on the wall each day!
If you’d rather display your photos as large paintings, there are several unique ways to go about it. You can go the traditional way by framing them, hammering in a nail, and hanging them like portraits.
Now that we’re more versatile in our decor, we can even choose to ditch the frame altogether. Even the nails aren’t required; just lean the canvas against the wall! You can put those large works on a floating shelf, under a console table in your entryway, or a mantelpiece if you have one.
Classy Black And White
There’s nothing easier or classier than making a black and white version of your photos. Make sure you select photographs that have contrasting shades.
Print them out in black and white. Now you can frame them any way you like or get some premium canvas prints for a more elegant appearance.
There’s no limit on how creative you can get with some gorgeous paintings from your own photos. The best part is that these will be unique since no store out there will have your personal photos. Don’t waste any more time browsing for the perfect decor; get busy and get your own!
