1. Make a shape
Arranging your photo collage into a shape is a fun way to bring your walls to life. Stars, circles and triangles all work well but there are no rules! Be creative and you’re sure to get eye catching results.
Decide which photos you’d like to include – the great thing about a collage as you can make it as big as you want with lots of different photos
Sketch out a rough shape for your collage on a piece of paper or lay out your collage in advance on the floor/table
Stick your prints to the wall and enjoy!
2. Use your fridge
Creating a photo collage on an everyday item like your fridge will make your kitchen look quirky and cool.
Select the photos that you’re going to display and then either use double sided sticky tape or small magnets to attach them to the fridge.
Use as many photos as you like for this collage and overlap them for a casual effect.
Colourful photos will give your fridge (and your whole kitchen) a new lease of life.
3. Photos in a bottle
Coming up with creative ways to display your photo prints is part of the fun and rolling them up in to clear glass bottles is sure to catch attention.
Get hold of some different sized bottles along with some photo prints in different formats. They don’t need to match – the more mismatched the better!
Carefully roll the prints and slip them into the bottles and wiggle them around until they’re in the right place.
Display the bottles in a cluster on a shelf or surface with the smaller ones at the front.
4. Use some wall art
When you’re making your photo collage, don’t forget about wall art. There are lots of materials and finishes available so you can create the display you want.
Use a series of photos from one event to create a themed display or opt for photos all with the same colour palette. Display your wall art collage on your fireplace and mix it with photo prints for an eclectic mix.
