Despite everything turning digital and being able to share your pictures and memories online, we all have a box (or several) hiding away, stuffed with old pictures. Pictures have a tendency to brighten up the home so you want to show them off, but are not sure how to do it. Looking around at what other people have done, it’s clear that ideas are infinite. Every room has its own flair, and how you hang your pictures can help influence that flair. Here are some ideas and DIY crafts to display your photos in a neat way.

Other ideas include: scrapbooking, putting them in nice photo albums and have them out for show, putting them on the inside of envelopes, and putting them on coasters. Displaying your pictures should be fun, so mix and match ideas. Use some store bought frames, or make your own! DIY projects can involve the whole family. Hanging up pictures can bring back old memories and new laughs. Collages allow for you to put together a bunch of photos in an organized manner. Light up your home with your own photographs. The ideas are endless, so explore any and all possibilities.
