Last year, Joseph and I took 6 months to travel Africa and Europe and saw some of the most beautiful places on earth! I’ve been so excited to print out and display some of our photos from Kenya & Europe, and of course here I am a year later just getting around to it. Why is it so dang hard to get photos printed out and displayed?! Does anyone else feel like it would be easier to train for a marathon? Picking the photos, uploading them, and then getting them all gussied up in frames seems like such a daunting task. But yay for me because I finally got around to printing some of our photos out! Okay, I’m being dramatic and I digress…onto the point.
I wanted a quick and easy way to display several of my photos and Joe suggested just putting matte around them and tacking them up with sticky tack. I was skeptical at first – but I have to say I am so happy with how it turned out! As much as I love an eclectic gallery wall, I also LOVE clean lines. This little DIY took us about 30 minutes and cost us $10 – including printing the photos!
Here’s what you’ll need:
-Matte frames (Joe and I spent $9 on matte frames at Hobby Lobby when they were 50% off – this made each of them $1 each for the 5×7 size)
(To hang the photos evenly we used Joe’s level, tape measure, and a pencil)
Here’s how you do it:
Simply tape all four corners of the picture down evenly to the back of your matte and hang however you desire! It turned out so simple and clean and I love how inexpensive it was!
Joe and I are selling prints from our travels last year to help off set the cost of our airfare for our upcoming trip to Kenya! We saw some beautiful places and captured some beautiful images and we are so thrilled to get to share them with you!
