While it’s great to have cool and unique photo frames around the house, it’s nice to mix it up a bit with an unexpected photo display option here and there. I still love this metal hand photo garland that I made last year so I partnered with our friends at Canon USA again to think of another hanging photo display for the living room to add a touch of gold to the walls there as well! Turns out, with the right supplies you can make a simple yet elegant display in a matter of minutes! Here’s how:
-gold macrame rings (in 5″ and 6″ sizes)
–large jump rings
–gold chain spool
-gold paper clips
-Canon PIXMA TS8020
–jewelry tool kit
Print out square 4″ and 3.25″ photos (2 of each size) to display in your loops. Use scissors or an X-Acto knife and mat to cut out your photos. My PIXMA TS8020 is perfect for printing photos, because regardless if the photos are black and white or in color, the prints always come out super crisp and clear.
Use your chain cutters to cut 4 chain sections that are all 3″ long.
Attach your large jump rings to each side of your 3″ chain sections and then use 3 of those sections to connect your 4 macrame rings together. Attach the last 3″ section to your top macrame ring and that will be what you use to hang your display once finished.
Attach a paper clip to each jump ring at the top of your macrame loops.
Slide your photos into the paper clip so that it is evenly centered in your loop. Once all your photos are secure, you’re ready to hang your display!
I love the simple lines and geometric shapes in this display and it’s a nice bonus that you can switch out the photos in a snap as well. You can also buy those macrame hoops in many sizes, so you can also vary the size and amount of rings pretty easily to fit your space. Of course with an adorable little baby face like Lola’s in the house, there’s not enough wall space in the world for all her sweet pictures. But that’s just my mama opinion talking 😉 xo. Laura
