DIY Art/Photo Wall Collages & Endless Inspiration

Decorate you boring and plain wall with photo collage! Photo collage is definitely one of the best décor you can create for your home as it not just gives aesthetic appeal but it also brings back good and fun memories. Learn how to create your own family collage now!

 

Step 1:

Decide what you want to showcase and where.  Photos, art, unique frames, eclectic object…or a mix?  The key is focusing on a purpose, a specific ”highlight” in the collage; for example, this may be one large piece, a grouping of like items, or the simple fact of pairing balanced, symmetric

Step 2:

 Select the frame types (or no frames) carefully.  Regardless of their styles, colors or shapes, your frames should have a somewhat obvious commonality.  Again, the key to a successful art wall collage is pairing “like items”.  The more similar the base items in your collage (ie. all black and white photos or all french vintage poster art), the more variation you can introduce with the frames. For example, you may decide to use a variety of brightly colored vintage frames on your black and white photos, but make sure they’re similar in detail and style.  Or perhaps your not framing art, and you’re choosing to showcase simply unique frames (so chic)!

If you are grouping various types of items (ie. photos, mixed art and mirrors), your frames will need to be more uniform.  For example, with mixed eclectic pieces, you may decide to use all black modern square frames, or white with silver accent frames.  The same rules apply for matting your photos and art; for example, you might use all natural craft matting, or mostly all white mattings with a few items in black matting.
