In life, you’ll be faced with many wants and needs. And this, my friends, is a need.
One of the many awesome things about film is that it forces you to slow down, and really think about what you’re doing before pressing that shutter button. When you do that, you end up with a lot more keepers. This shoot, for example, was taken with half a roll of film. And you know what? I love every single shot. In case you’re wondering, the other half of roll was used here.
My photography will be on display at an upcoming event, so I decided to get crafty and make a photo display. I thought I’d share this tutorial so you can make one too! I’d love for you to send me a picture of how yours turns out!
1. Pegboard. I got mine from Home Depot.
2. Spray Paint. The color I chose was “Robin Egg” from Michaels.
3. Christmas ornament hangers or paper clips.
4. A push pin.
5. All of your favorite photos.
6. Scissors and yarn.
Now that you’ve got your supplies, let’s get started!
Step 1: Spray paint your pegboard and let it dry.
Step 2: Take a long piece of yarn. I chose hot pink because it really stands out against the turquoise pegboard. Weave the yarn through the edges of your board. It should look something like this:
Step 3: Take the push pin and poke holes in all of your pictures. You will later put the ornament hooks or paper clips through those holes to hang your pictures.
Step 4: Make a nice layout for your photos. In hindsight, I would have printed all my pictures out at the same size and orientation. It would’ve been much easier to make a layout had I done that.
Step 5: Hang up all your photos.
Now if you’re feeling really crafty, there’s more you can add! I made 2 of these photo displays and connected them with a banner I made. Fun, huh?!
