The past 2 years have been difficult. Last Christmas and Thanksgiving, many families were unable to celebrate together due to the ongoing global pandemic. These tough times have highlighted the importance of family and cherishing our loved ones.
It’s only natural, then, that this year, we’re eager to proudly display our family photos. To honor those we are able to see and include the ones we aren’t.
But this year, why not take your family photos to the next level? Instead of a traditional photo album, or pictures tacked on the fridge, why not try something different?
We’ve got your inspiration right here! Read on to learn some new and creative ways to display all your favorite family pictures in a unique and creative way.
1. Make a Creative Collage
Can’t choose which photos to display? The good news is you don’t have to! Instead, you can create a custom collage of all of your most cherished pictures.
You can choose from tonnes of different templates to create exactly the type of effect you want. You can even make a different collage for each family member, or have different collages for different family events.
This option is perfect if you’ve got a big family, or even if you’re just a little indecisive and find it tough to choose your favorite pictures. You can even include your collage on the family Christmas card.
2. String and Clothespins
This is one of the cutest and most simple ways to display photos. It’s great for giving rooms a boho vibe, and you can choose multiple pictures of your family.
All you need is a piece of string or wire and some mini clothespins. The string you probably have on hand already, and the clothespins you can get at any dollar store, art supply store, or even in some supermarkets.
Once you’ve got your supplies, all you need is to string them up and choose which photos you want to display. If you want to make things more festive, you can paint the clothespins in seasonal colors and use fairly lights instead of string.
3. A Gallery Wall
Gallery walls are all the rage these days, and it’s not hard to see why. They look amazing in any room, and they’re another great way of displaying multiple photos at once. They do take a little bit of time to set up, but when you’re finished the effect is amazing.
Some tips on how to hang a gallery wall: mark out where you’re thinking of putting the photos with tape so that you can visualize everything before you start hanging hooks. Also, if you’re going with different-sized photos, start with the largest photo first and build the others around it.
