How to Create an Eye-Catching Photo Collage with SheKnows
Photo collages are an easy way to dress up a bare wall, emphasize your room's style & personality and create an eye-catching impact. If you are looking for helpful hints on styling and hanging a collage, be it art prints or treasured photos, there are many tips here to guide you!
CONSIDER HOW MUCH OF AN IMPACT YOU WANT THE COLLAGE TO MAKE
April Force Pardoe, an interior designer and owner of April Force Pardoe Interiors, says that if you intend the collage to be the focal point of the room, it should be placed on the most prominent wall or the wall that someone first sees when walking into the room.
LAY OUT THE COLLAGE ON THE FLOOR FIRST
Before you even think about hammering a nail in the wall, take Pardoe's advice. She recommends laying all of your frames out on the floor and playing around with the arrangement. "You can also cut out craft paper or newspaper in the size of your frames. Use painter's tape to attach those to the wall and create the collage that way before putting a nail in the wall. The papers are great for marking nail holes and noting your measurements before hanging. Then hang your art and remove the paper," she explains.
