Make Your Own Photo Wall Collage

May 27, 2023

A DIY decor project for Saturday could be creating a personalized photo wall collage. It’s a fantastic way to showcase your favorite memories and add a personal touch to your living space. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you get started:

Materials you’ll need:

  • Printed photographs
  • Picture frames of various sizes and styles
  • Cardboard or foam board
  • Scissors or craft knife
  • Adhesive (glue or double-sided tape)
  • Measuring tape or ruler
  • Optional: decorative items like washi tape, stickers, or string lights


  1. Select the photos you want to include in your collage. Choose a theme or focus, such as family, travel, or a specific event, to create a cohesive look.
  2. Measure the wall space where you plan to hang your collage. This will help you determine the layout and number of frames needed.
  3. Prepare the frames by removing any existing artwork or stock photos and cleaning the glass or plastic inserts.
  4. Cut out pieces of cardboard or foam board to fit inside the frames. This will act as a backing for your photos and provide stability.
  5. Arrange the frames on a flat surface, experimenting with different layouts until you find the arrangement that you like. You can create a symmetrical grid, an asymmetrical arrangement, or a more organic and flowing design.
  6. Once you’re satisfied with the layout, begin inserting your photos into the frames. Trim them if necessary to fit the frame sizes.
  7. Attach the cardboard or foam board backing to each frame using adhesive. Make sure the backing is secure but removable in case you want to change the photos later.
  8. Hang the frames on the wall, following your planned layout. Use a measuring tape or ruler to ensure the frames are level and evenly spaced.
  9. To add extra flair, you can incorporate decorative elements. For example, you can use washi tape to create borders around the frames or add stickers or labels to personalize each photo.
  10. Optional: To create a cozy ambiance, you can hang string lights around the photo collage or add LED lights behind certain frames to highlight specific photos.

Remember to have fun and get creative with your photo wall collage. It’s a wonderful way to reminisce about special moments and make your space uniquely yours. —Vita Daily
