Creating a Picture Gallery





One of my recent DIY projects was a picture gallery.  I had most of these wonderful photos just strung up on ribbon and attached to the wall but it didn’t look finished.

So enter a rather outdated picture my sister gave me that used to hang in our parents house…similar to this

Not really the greatest.  And not really my decor.

But it was so easy to fix.  I took out matte, no chances of saving it because the picture was glued onto it, and the glass.  Then I twisted in these things…

I have no idea what they are called.  Anyways I screwed them in right in the recess where the matte used to lay.  Six in total, three pairs.  Then its only a matter of picking out your ribbon or adorable twine and stringing it.  I did mine a bit loose so that the pictures would hang in a curve.  It turned out gorgeous.  And the best part is that the photos can be switched out any time for new ones and I can hang 15 pictures without needing 15 frames.  Quite economical.

Hope you enjoyed!
