Advice on Hanging Multiple Small Photos

Assisted Living: What to Do With Paris Pictures?

CasaSugar Community member Carrothead recently asked the Assisted Living group for help on displaying some pictures.

She writes, "A few years ago I had a calendar that consisted of pictures of different places in Paris, and I cut all of the photos out to display on my wall of the dorm room I was in. (I had to fill up the ugly tan walls!) Now that I am out of the dorms (thankfully) and in my own apartment, I want a cute and clever way to display these photos. Putting them in individual frames is always an option, but I suppose I'm against it because that would be around 12 tiny (and by tiny, i mean 6 inch by 6 inch square) pictures to hang! I'm looking for ideas to display these adorable pictures, on the wall, table top, or any other place! Would anyone like to help?"

For my suggestion, and to leave one of your own,

.

Since the art that Carrothead is using isn't too precious, she can afford to be a little experimental. My idea? Make multiple high-quality copies of the calendar photos, and then create a grid-like pattern on a wall. A similar project was created in a room at the Portland Ace Hotel. You can learn how to create this display here.

Anyone else have good ideas for Carrothead? Share them in the comments!

I am late to the party, but I was going to recommend something very similar to what bunnyhorse did! I did the same thing with traditional clothespins instead of the style of clips bunnyhorse used and I love the look!

This might not be the look you're going for, but I had a similar problem with a postcard set I wanted to display and this is what I did: http://www.flickr.com/photos/keads/3929004709/

You could make 2 wood 6" cubes, then put each image on a side of the cubes and use them as decorative accents, and you can turn the cubes every now and then to see different images. Here are instructions how to do it with an inkjet printer (you would have to scan the pictures then print them backwards) http://matsutakeblog.blogspot.com/2009/10/how-to-transfer-inkjet-images-to-wood.html#more

I think it would be cool to hang them individually in the shape of the Eiffel tower. You could start out by hanging four at the base, then three above it, two above that, and then one on top of each other for the rest.
