A few weeks ago I finally put together our family photo wall. I had most of the frames already but they were in other places around the house. The others I collected over a few months. Most of them came from Hobby Lobby and where half off, but a few came from the dollar store and walmart!
I wanted this wall to kind of represent what my husband and I are all about. Instead of recent family photos, I wanted to put photos from our marriage and our favorite photos of our grandparents. Okay and one of our cat :) I am still working on getting photos of my husband's grandparents so while we wait, I just filled the frames with more photos of us :)
Normally, when hanging photos, I just hold the photo up to the wall and say, "Eh, that looks okay" and then end up nailing it in the wrong spot. :) This time I decided to be smarter (and put less holes in the wall).
I got some craft paper (or mailing paper) from the dollar store for $1.00 and just laid all the frames down and traced them.
After that, I cut them out and taped them to the wall where I thought they would look nice. It was so amazing to be able to just un-tape the paper and move it to another spot.I also labeled each piece of paper so that I could tell what was in the frames because some of them were similar in shape.
My cat Murphy was a huge help during this process....
Here is the finished photo wall...
I LOVE IT!
And here is a photo that I labeled for you so that you can see what is in all the photos...
Now that's it done, it makes me so happy every time I see it :)
I am linking this project up to these parties!
