5 Simple DIY ideas to display family photos

Yesterday in my recap of Episode 3 of Design Stars, I talked about how Miera was able to creatively display the Kardishian’s family photos.  I have come across 5 simple design ideas that I love for displaying your own family’s photos using these DIY projects.

1.)  It’s All About Composition:  Create a mural size print of a family photo.  Use distinct cropping or simple photography rules for composition to create an image that is unique to you and your family:

2.)  Create your own personalized coasters:  I love this DIY idea, not only is it inexpensive but it’s a great gift idea.  The step-by-step for creating these photo coasters calls for the use of bathroom tile, glue, resin, and felt mounting circles – that’s it!

3.)  Wooden Block Photos:  This DIY idea looks to be a little more complicated and time consuming than the tile idea above; but, with a little patience and diligence, think of the possibilities and memories you can create!

4.)  Photo Clip Frame:  It can’t get more simple than twine and a handful of small clothes pins – right?  The trick will be finding the right frame that can create the sense of depth between the photos and the wall.  What I love about this idea, is that the mat to your photos will be the color of your wall!  DIY tip:  Look for inexpensive shadow boxes at thrift stores – remember, if you find one that may not be black, there is always black spray paint!

5.)  Bottled Up Memories:  This idea is great for displaying different size photos using different size bottles.  Don’t want to spend the money on fancy bottles?!?  Use the bottles around you – old beer bottles work great!  Use this step-by-step to tint them the shade you want!  They are sure to stand out in any shelve around your home!
