How to Hang Picture Gallery 1

Share on: 

It is difficult for most people to create a picture gallery and they are not even sure where to start.

Here are a few tips to give you confidence to create a gallery wall.

Choose Themes

Comic strips, children’s art, love notes.

Four leaf clovers, funny want ads, postcards.

Even concert tickets are examples of items that you can use.

Pick Frames

Your next step is to decide how all of your items should be framed.

Using the same frame for each piece can be dramatic, but usually only works if you are solely planning to display photographs.

Mix & Match

If you are planning to display both photography and other items then frame all the photographs identically and select frames for the other items that complement the object.

Selecting an ornate frame is a whimsical way of drawing attention to items that are special or very different from the rest of the collection.

Create a Layout

Before hammering into your wall, arrange all of your pieces on the floor and create a layout that is balanced.

Sometimes it is very useful to draw a plan of the arrangement which measures the spaces between each item so that you have a reference point.

Go Step by Step

Start in the center of the composition and hang that piece first.

Then, piece by piece hang the other pieces moving from the center outwards.
