What You Need:
Ugly wrapping paper or butcher paper
Scissors and Tape
Hammer and Nails
Arrange your pictures/plates/artwork on the floor. Play around with it
for an hour until you've found the layout you like best.
Leaving the rest of the pieces on the floor, choose one photo. Place it on the paper and trace the outside of the shape. Cut out the shape and then lay it on the back of your photo. Use a nail or the sharp end of the pencil to mark/poke a hole where the nail(s) will be.
Be sure to label the paper and the back of the corresponding photo. Because if you're like me, you will forget which piece of paper goes with which frame before it's all said and done.
Using the layout on the floor as your guide, tape the pieces of paper onto the wall:
Hammer the nail directly into the hole you have already marked on the paper. This is especially handy when you have a shelf or something that requires those ~pesky~ evenly spaced nails.
Pull the paper off of the nail and hang the frame with the matching letter on the back.
Keeping it real: See the photo in the top right? I have no idea whose house that is. I bought the four matching frames at a yard sale and I am waiting to find the perfect photo to put in there. Does anyone else do this??
