THE WALL OF FRAME

01 April 2015

It’s so much nicer to look at friendly faces, childhood memories and magical family moments than a boring bare wall. But hanging multiple pictures in one space is harder than hanging one big one. Turn your walls into perfectly arranged photo collages of all the family by following these simple steps.

STEP 1: START AT THE TOP AND WORK DOWN

Make the top line using a spirit level. Then create your columns and be sure that each one fits your widest frame. Your frames can be different shapes, colours and materials. But use similar sizes. Don’t worry! It’ll all come together in the end. If you’re really nervous, you can always test it on the floor before hanging it on the wall.

Sigrid’s tip: Don’t overcrowd the wall.
Leave space above, below, between and on either side.

STEP 2: LINE UP THE CENTRE POINTS

Work downwards in columns lining up the centre point of each photo frame. The gaps between the frames don’t need to be the same. It’s ok if some are bigger than others. Just keep the centre line consistent.

Sigrid’s tip: The pictures should roughly align at the bottom. But it’s totally fine if some of the columns are longer than others.

STEP 3: ROUND IT ALL OFF

Add some photo frames on either side to create a more
circular shape. Remember to line up those centre points on these shorter columns, too.
