How To: Create a Collage Wall

Since Matt and I moved into our new house, I've been painting and organizing non-stop, and am only now just getting to decorate rooms rather than just throwing furniture into them. For my guest room, I was inspired by a trip to Morocco I had the great fortune to take last year.  So, on top of Moroccan inspired bedding from Charisma and a lamp I bought on my trip, I also decided to use some of my photographs from the trip.  But there were so many! So, I purchased a "gallery in a box" from Pottery Barn and got to work. 

To create my collage wall, I started by gathering my supplies.  Aside from picking photographs and putting them in the appropriate frames, I needed kraft paper, a pen, scissors, and scotch tape. 

Then, I traced each frame onto the rolled out kraft paper. 

Next, I cut out the said tracings and continued until I had a doppleganger of each frame. 

I then used the scotch tape to hang each kraft paper cutout on the wall until I had found an arrangement that I liked. 

Then, you can either measure or eye where you will place the appropriate hanging implement.  After, carefully remove the kraft paper and hang the frames. 

And voila! 

Until next time,
