A Picture Frame Collage

I've discovered an easy way to hang a collage of picture frames.   Too many times I've started hanging the pictures only to discover they’re completely crooked or unevenly spaced.

I think I picked up this tip from one of my many explorations through Pinterest and it’s been in the back of my mind since. 

First things first, decide on your frames to be used and the layout you’d like.  I just played with them on the lounge floor arranging and rearranging until I was happy with a display. 

I then cut out pieces of scrap paper in the size of each of the frames.  I transferred these pieces of paper to the walls using masking tape which comes off most surfaces without marking.   Now you can move these papers around until you find the perfect arrangement to display your frames.  

Once satisfied with the layout, start transferring your picture frames to the wall one at a time.   I've used Velcro picture hanging strips which are amazing for rental properties as they come off without ripping the paint off the walls!

This frame collage has transformed our living room, I’m so pleased with the way it’s turned out.

PS.  please excuse the poor quality of the photos, there wasn't very good lighting while I was doing this project.
