I take a lot of pictures. There is nothing I love more than looking at them printed. Old ones, new ones, ones I took, ones I didn’t take, 4x6s, instax minis, square, anything! I hate it when they are locked inside a drawer; I just want to display all of them cuz I feel they’re all so pretty and special.
However, with the very little space I have in my room it can be tricky mounting things on my wall. Frames are too chunky and sometimes expensive; I really don’t want to puncture my photos with a thumbtack; and even when I put fun-tak or tape, they fold or fall. Thanks to several ideas on the internet, I finally found a great solution to that problem!
There are many ways to make this, but since this is what I had at hand, this is how I did mine. You should do yours with what you have in hand, too! If you don’t have clothespins, improvise! Use paperclips! Etc.
You can also purchase these already made online. Here are some I found in Urban Outfitters. I don’t know about you, but I find it a little ridiculous to waste almost $15 on something I can make for less than $5!
These have not failed me. I just keep adding more to my room. They are a great focal point and a way to brighten up your bedroom and display awesome memories. My walls always remain interesting since I keep moving and replacing photos. Also, this method doesn’t damage your walls, in case you’re renting an apartment where they, for some reason, don’t let you drill holes on the walls, or if you just don’t want to. Or if you know you get bored with things rapidly, you can always transfer these to another wall (or take them off altogether) very easily.
