I’ve been in the process of organizing years of photos that are stored on our computer. I am so bad at printing out and displaying pictures, so I decided to try something new to display all of our old Halloween pictures from years past. I came up with a DIY photo display that I can easily pull out every October and add photos to it each year. I’m excited with how it turned out and the kids love looking back at all of their costumes from previous years (like my DIY sock monkey costume and DIY Olaf costume!)
DIY: How to Display Halloween Pictures
Gather all of your materials:
You will need:
- Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape
- Scotch® Create Mounting Squares or Scotch® Create Fastener Dots
- Craft Paper
- Halloween Pictures
- Clear Stickers
- Small Clothespins
The first thing I did was print all my photos in black and white. I decided to make them square and cut them out to look like polaroids. On the bottom of the photos, I added some small clear stickers to say the dates. All of our kids look so similar as babies, and we reused many of the costumes, so I know this will help me remember who is who in future years!
I cut flags out of the craft paper and attached the photos with the Scotch® Expressions Washi Tape to some of them.
On the patterned paper, I used the Scotch® Create Mounting Squares which was a great option because it made the photos a little more 3 dimensional against the flag.
Another great option would be to use the velcro Scotch® Create Fastener Dots because you could easily take on and off the photos. This would be great if you are attaching photos to a wooden banner that you already own but want to replace the photos with something else later (and yes, that photo of my husband is beyond ridiculous…typical).
Next, I took an old large frame that I had and spray painted it black. Then, I lightly sanded it for a distressed look.
Using thumbtacks, I attached twine on the back of the frame.
Then I just started clipping on photos with the clothespins!
I made sure to leave space so that I can add photos to it in the future.
I love how cohesive everything looks since I stuck with a black and white theme. The kids have already loved looking at the Halloween pictures every single day and now we don’t have to go through the whole “what were they for Halloween last year?” conversation that we inevitably have every single year because we never remember.
