I loved this photo display because it was a little different than what you see at most parties, it can be used for any of your photos (thinking Instagram photos would be so fun!), and I could glam it up with a little eucalyptus garland.
I have to share a little secret though...
I made it harder than it should have been.
So this is one of those "do as I say, not as I do" posts.
What you'll need:
Thread or some sort of thin rope
Tape (regular or washi tape)
Determine how long you want your dowel rod to be and cut to size. Craft stores have them at varying lengths but mine was from Lowes and needed cut.
Lay out your photos and decide how you want them to be arranged.
Cut rope or thread for each of the columns and the top portion that will be used to hang your display. Tie these to your dowel rod.
Here's where I screwed up... I used hot glue to attach the photos. Like a dummy the tape never occurred to me and let me tell you, washi tape is way easier. I added some to the backs just to give you a visual.
If you want to add a garland like I did, just cut a bunch of stems and attach them with floral wire or the same thread you used if its not noticeable.
If you're a stickler with details you may end up having to hot glue a few stubborn leaves to the garland. My mom thought I was crazy doing this but I'm such a perfectionist.
And that, my friends, is all there is to it! If you end up making this be sure to email me or tag me on your photos, I'd love to see the finished products!
