Picture boards allow you to take photos off of your computer screen and display them on your walls. These boards can bring your favorite memories to life, and you’ll end up with decor that’s both beautiful and meaningful.
To offer you inspiration, we’ve compiled 21 photo board ideas.
Select a picture board design that fits both your personality and other mounted wall art.
Once you’ve chosen a design, just pick out your favorite photos to complete your project. Incorporate a range of frame colors and sizes for a design full of character.
Driftwood, which can be found on most beaches, makes for beautiful home decor material. Painted frames make for unique photo board outlines. Fasten hemp cords in zigzag formation across your frame using nails, screws or staples.
A magnetic board gives you the option to replace photos whenever you want—a bonus for active, growing families. Clipboards make it simple to change your more dated artwork for updated photos. For a fun spin, paint the clipboard a bright hue to produce more color and contrast on the wall.
Caption each photo with the date and location so your special memories are captured forever. Line them perfectly in a frame, leaving ample white space for easy viewing. Build contrast by using different types of photos, from landscapes to family portraits.
Fasten strings of festive lights (white works best) in a flowing pattern on a wall or board. Making the pattern seasonal is an easy way to decorate for the holidays, and re-shaping the lights afterwards is simple. For the final touch, hang photos on the twinkle lights with clothespins or hooks.
For a simple and chic photo collage, use a white-colored picture frame as your foundation. Don’t worry about the strings being exact, any that are skewed will give the piece a more natural feel. Creative and stylish, this honeycomb-inspired photo display surely brightens the mood. Create a fun, circular-shaped photo display utilizing a hula hoop as your base.
Paint it a color that matches your other decor or, when in doubt, choose a metallic tone. Forgo straight lines and blank space with a photo board that knows no bounds.
By creating an assorted arrangement—complete with photos layered on top of each other—you’ll achieve a chic and artsy vibe. For a special celebration, like a birthday or quinceañera, create a number-shaped collage out of your photos.
To make your collage extra meaningful, select photos that include loved ones, like grandparents, aunts and cousins.
Add some flair to your bedroom or living room with a macrame photo display. Vary the lengths of your rope pieces to give your photo collage plenty of edge and personality. The asymmetrical look will create a dynamic gallery wall that draws attention to your photos.
