DIY Collage Picture Frame Wall


So we highlighted out entry way wall a light Gray color, now we needed some art work to dress it up. I wanted to do something different and create a collage of pictures. I wanted to do this with a very small budget of 25$, trying not to spend too much on it.

I found several links on Pinterest for "Free Printable Art Work" "Free Printable Art Collage" and used several of those. littlegoldpixel has a lot of really unique and cute prints for free downloading and printing. I used White heavy card stock on all my prints and printed them all from home on my computer printer.



I also found a super amazing Etsy shop DreamBigPrintables and WishfulPrinting that has super affordable cute prints for sale. I printed most from these two. Tons to pick from and they runs sales often. I choose prints that fit my personality like: Mountains/Adventure/Tea/Arrows/Feathers/Geodes/Christian Quotes etc.
This will also be my go to when I finish my sons room for Astrological prints.

So had all my prints on hand, next I went to several ARC Thrift stores, in the Denver Metro area. We seriously have the best thrifting stores ever! ARC offers 50% every Saturday and I easily found all Black and Silver modern like new frames for around 1-2$ each. I took apart all the frames and cleaned them up with Windex and made them sparkle and look new again.

Then I started to crop down some of the pictures to fit the frames with scissors, got them all finished and started to hang them up. I had no rhyme or reasoning for the collage. I just eyes it to decide what looks best. I did mark a few spots with masking tape so I would remember where I wanted to place each frame.




That's it! Super easy and under 25$ if you are frugal like me.
I love our entry way wall, its personalized to my liking and adds interest to that wall.

  1. I have a wall like this, in fact two of them. One a framed an old calendar. I loved the prints for each month, so I framed each one, then I rotate them thru the seasons on my wall!
