What you will need

  • Pictures or illustrations
  • Photos
  • Photo frames
  • Any tools required for hanging up frames (hammer, nails, picture hooks, etc)

Getting started

Create the bottom row first – start in the corner and keep adding frames as you move away from it. Add as many frames – or as few – as you like. Then, move one row up and add your second row in the same fashion. Keep building rows of frames until you’re satisfied with the result.

Decorating tip

You can make additions to the display as the years go by, simply by adding frames to the bottom row or by building upwards. Keep in mind that the size of your frames can be different, and that this look works best if you have a mix of portrait and landscape configurations.
