Make original decorations with photos

1. Different sized photographs

Play with the sizes and textures of the paintings to give your room a disorganized feeling.

Usually, we tend to hang photos of similar sizes and frames symmetrically. But what would happen if we let ourselves be carried away and used not only different sized frames but also with different colors and textures?

Join this trend and uniquely arrange your photographs, using the photo above to inspire you!

2. Puzzle decorations with photos

You can also make puzzles with your best photos and then decorate your home with them. You’ll have fun putting them together! If doing puzzles isn’t your thing, how about dividing a photograph into three or four squares?

3. Play with the door frame

The door is a space that we usually don’t decorate. Today, we propose you change this situation. Print your favorite photos in different sizes, in color and black and white.

Then, arrange them around the door, following the outline of the frame. You can’t get more original than that!

4. Original decorations with photos: Make a photo garland

Garlands are excellent ideas to decorate with Polaroid photos. You can even add lights to them!

We love this idea because it’s so simple. You need a strong string and small wooden clips. Then, you just have to hang the string somewhere in the room, against the wall, and start decorating with your photos. You can even add other objects to give it a little more color and personality.

You can also use strips of lights to make the garlands, this way you’ll get intimate and different lighting with a very personal touch!

5. Photo collage

Who said that photos have to go in frames?

Draw a design on the wall and fill it with photos. There are so many options: you can make a heart, the Eiffel Tower, a house, or whatever you can think of!

Want another idea? Write an inspirational phrase in the middle of the photos!

It will be simply sensational!

6. Collage pictures

Making original decorations with photos isn’t as complicated as you might think. If you don’t want to make big changes in your home because you like to change your decorations a lot, you can make collages with your photos.

For the following idea, you’ll need four equal squares. Take 4 sheets that fit in your frames. Draw a letter from the word LOVE on each sheet and fill each letter with small photographs. Then, arrange each collage in a frame and hang them however you want.

7. Mosaic with Polaroid photos

Make a collage with photos and put together the ones that are the most important to you.

A corkboard might be the only thing you need to make original decorations with photos. If you have a Polaroid camera at home, use it! Otherwise, you can print your photos in a Polaroid format.

When you have your photos, arrange them on the corkboard in a somewhat disorganized way to give your decoration a more relaxed feeling.

8. Original decorations with photos – don’t forget the corners!

Just like doors are often largely neglected in decoration, the corners of the walls often suffer the same fate. Usually, we focus on putting pictures in the middle of the walls, however changing the focus can change the style of an entire room!

Choose your best photos, frame them, and play with them by putting them in the corner of two walls, some on one wall, and others on the opposite. You’ll be amazed at the result!

9. Photographs on the stairs

This might not be one of our most original ideas. However, it never goes out of style!

Take advantage of the forgotten space at the side of the stairs to have your best photographs there. Without a doubt, it’s a good way to go to bed (or get up) with a big smile.

10. Pillows with photos

Another option is to create your own personalized decorative elements like pillows.

Another way to make original decorations with photos is to use personalized cushions! Choose a photo that you love, whether it’s a landscape, your children, or your pet, and transform that memory into a beautiful and comfortable cushion to give a personal touch to your room or sofa.

11. Original decorations with photos: hanging photos

Do you like so-called eco-friendly decorations? Then join the trend by creating a hanging photo mural. You’ll need a stick long and strong enough to hold the decoration, strong string, and photographs.

  • The idea is to join the photographs with the string, making three or four strips of photos, depending on the size of the decoration you want.
  • Then tie the strings of the photo strips to the stick and hang it on the wall.

12. Tell a story with photos

If you place several pictures with detailed photos on the same subject, you can tell a story in an original way. For example, you can put a photo of coffee foam, of a hand on the cup, of some lips drinking … Let your imagination run wild!

Making original decorations with photos is much easier than you imagined, isn’t it?

Open your mind, look at your room, and let your personality express itself. You’ll be amazed at the results!
