Making Stuff: Photo Collage Wall

by This is Carrie on August 2, 2011

I have a bad habit of not getting photos up on the wall. Printing the photos is easy. Hanging them on the wall is the hard part.  When I discovered Command Frame Hangers, I hung a collage of simple glass frames from IKEA on the wall without even having the pictures printed to put inside. It was that easy. A couple months later, I finally got the pictures printed from our (almost 2 year old) family photo shoot with the awesome Carson Day and the empty wall was complete.

I love the way the collage captures a moment of our family’s life (a moment that has so quickly passed). That’s why I’m already planning another photo collage of an even older family photo shoot with Carson (and planning a new family photo shoot too).

Ooooh I noticed it right away when I was over! I loved it. I should have said something. :)

I’ve been wanting to do a family photo shoot at The Camp and this is just motivating me more!

The Camp and The Lab both have great spots.

I love these frames and have been using them for years. I love that you took an older photo shot, if I don’t get them up right away I think I can’t use the, you proved that wrong, love the arrangement. I am making the man’s flannel shirt quilt for my first grandbaby. It has been so easy and fun, I hope my dil loves it as much as I have loved making it. You are great, thanks for being so inspiring.

this looks great! i love the colorful pictures, too. i’m considering doing this on our veeeeerrrrry long hallway wall… but on the ikea site, i’m only seeing 4×6 size frames… yours looks like there’s various sizes. am i seeing correctly?

thanks! and great idea!

I bought the frames quite a long time ago and haven’t looked for them in the store since. I hope they still make them since I want to do another wall!

I do think other companies make them too. Check out your local Michaels or Aaron Brothers Art store.

thanks so much! i just got back from an ikea trip, and apparently, all sizes but the 4×6 have been discontinued :( i’ll have to check out michaels or aaron brothers… in the meantime, we’ve got LOTS of 4×6 frames to fill!

thanks for your reply :)

I love this picture wall! Would you mind sharing if all of the frames are 5×7 and 8×10? I’m curious whether there are other size frames included as well. Thanks!
