DIY : PERSONALIZED WALL ART

IMG_44352

My boyfriend and I haven’t quite come to a decision as to what the perfect headboard/wall art would be yet so I created this wall of memories to give a little more interest to the room beyond a naked wall.  I think it came out quite well!  At some point we will have a real headboard or discover the perfect piece of art to put there, but for now, I quite like looking at some of our favourite pictures as we head to bed at night. The best part is that it cost me next to nothing and I only had to put 4 small holes in the wall!

Here is what you will need:

– your pictures. I chose to do all mine in black and white to keep a clean look, otherwise it would have been way to busy looking. I also printed more than I needed so I can switch them out periodically.

-scissors

-clothes pins

-Thick string (I like the look of this rustic string I got from the dollar store)

– A hammer

– 4 small nails

Create these two “base” stabilizing strings with the four nails and the string (I doubled mine up to give it some extra strength).  Make sure they are as tight as they can get because they will need to support the strings of pictures and they will start to bend into the middle if they aren’t tight.

Add as many strings as you please (I ended up adding one more once I had all the pictures up because it looked sparse).

The final product!

Let me know if you like it, if you try it or if you have something similar!

Xo, Andrea
