Displaying Snapshots

Displaying family snapshots | Let's Explore

One of my goals for this year was to get some of our zillions of photos up on the walls where we can enjoy them. My girls, of course, love seeing photos of themselves at different ages. Scrolling through photos on the computer is just not the same! I wanted to be able to display lots of candid snapshots, and be able to rotate or change photos fairly easily.

My most recent project is a pair of floating frames with black and white photos. We have these hanging in our dining room. The floating frame is perfect for an informal arrangement of snapshots that I can update throughout the year if I want. Baby Henry needs his photo added!

I love our simple pocket frame for switching out 4×6 photos easily. This is also where we put cousins’ and friends’ school photos, baby announcements, etc. It’s plastic and nothing fancy, but I love how it looks all filled with our photos. {Ours is the Kikkerland XL Photostrip – view on Kikkerland’s website or Amazon.}

Pocket photo display

In the girls’ bedroom, they wanted to have all their Disneyland teacup ride photos displayed. I made a collage in Photoshop and printed it on letter-size photo paper. I love how this turned out! Next, we want to make a collage of the girls’ in their Halloween costumes each year.

I’m off to a good start and love seeing our memories displayed where we can all enjoy them.

How do you display photos in your home? I would love to hear your ideas!

Love these display ideas! In your floating frames, how do you keep the photos in place? I’ve never used a frame like that before.

This is an area I can use improvement, I have very few current pics out to enjoy.
