Fresh Ways to Display Family Photos

The more photo décor options you have, the more pictures you can show off!

Photographer Jami Edman shows us five new ways to personalize your home with photos.


HANG SMALL PRINTS IN A BIG FRAME

I took an old frame and spray painted it white. Then strung (actually my husband did this part) wire in three rows. I also spray painted mini clothes pins (you can buy these at Hobby Lobby). Then I just attached my instagram photos, printed at Persnickety Prints in Orem. I am excited to hang this in my bedroom and occasionally change out the photos.

METALLIC DRY ERASE BOARD

The second project is a great product from Pro Digital Photos in Pleasant Grove. They have these great dry erase boards that are actually metal, thus they are metallic as well. They even come with dry erase markers and an eraser. They have adorable templates. Just drop your photos into the online templates and you're done!
Visit www.prodigitalphotos.com and use the code "kslmetal" to receive 25% off the dry erase board.

VACATION PHOTO WALL

The next project came from an idea to display some of my family vacation photos. We love to travel. So why not dedicate a whole wall to our passion for travel! First I ordered some vintage maps off Etsy. You could also get these from old textbooks or do a search for printables on the web. Then I went through all my old frames I don't use anymore. I picked 3 colors from the vintage maps and spray painted all the frames with those colors. Then I had Pro Digital Photos print off some of our vacation photos, and put the maps in frames. Presto! A great memory wall!

TILED PHOTOGRAPHS

Another simple way to decorate your home with photos is to mod podge them to tiles. Persnickety Prints has a free download for a square word art and I picked a picture of my husband and I. All you do is mod podge the photograph onto the tile. Let dry and set on an easel. Makes a great Father's Day gift!
Note: this only works well with photographic prints, not prints printed off your home printer. Their inks will smear.

LARGE INSTAGRAM PRINT

Another cute product is a large print of square photos. You can use Instagram photos or crop your photos into a square and drag them into a free template offered on Persnickety Prints website. Visit www.persnicketyprints.com and enter the code "KSL15x40" for $5 off the large Instagram print.

I hope this has inspired you to get those pictures off your hard drive and phone and personalize your home decor.

Today I am launching my new website www.usingmycamera.com that teaches digital slr camera owners how to use their cameras. How to take the camera off auto and learn the settings to take your photos from snapshots to actual photography. It is a full 6 hour course you can watch over and over, pause, practice, and interact with me by asking questions on the website. Since we are launching the website today we are offering introductory pricing for studio 5 viewers that is only good until Monday. Visit www.usingmycamera.com for details.
