More Creative Photo Display Ideas!

As promised, I'm back with more creative photo display ideas! As you know, I'm going to try to keep it to a single idea each week, and this weeks theme is......chicken wire! No, not something I would have immediately thought of when thinking of photo displays but the idea has really grown on me, and I'm itching to give it a go. The great thing about this type of display is that it is really easy to swap out the pictures when the mood takes you.

Don't you just love how one idea can be done in so many different ways? It can be as large or small as you like, the frame can be colorful or simple, you could mix up the photos with some keepsakes, use clothes pegs or clips - whatever suits your home and your personality. 

How to do it
This is really simple to do. Take a old picture frame with the glass removed, and paint it if you feel like it. Measure the back of the frame and cut the chicken wire to fit, and staple it onto the back of the frame - you'll need a more industrial sized stapler for this job! Use clothes pins or some clips to hang the snapshots to the chicken wire. It's also a nice touch to decorate the clips in some way (see the very first photo above) If you don't want to use chicken wire, then you can simply do as they have in the last photo shown, and use some string instead. Even easier!

Please note that as there is no glass, your images will be more prone to discoloration by the sun, so only put on pictures that you can get a copy of. 

As always, let me know what you think!
