There’s no question that a room filled with pictures of family, pets and amazing vacations will make your mom smile. But it’s not just about what you’re framing – it’s how you show it off! Instead of simply framing a photo of yourself (or your family) and giving it to mom for Mother’s Day this year, go above and beyond with your presentation!

This method is perfect for small hallways. Contribute a corner of a room to memories at your vacation home or (soon to be embarrassing) photos of your children as pre-teens with a unique wall collage. Tip: For straight lines, measure out the collage grid with painters tape before you add photos to the wall.

Who says that you can only have one photo per frame? If you have a large frame, organize multiple photos inside of it! Remove the back pieces of the frame and either staple or glue rows of lace or ribbon to the backside of the frame. Secure your photos onto the lace with clothespins, paper clips or bulldog clips.

Line your mantle with mason jars and “frame” photos inside of them! Play around with the arrangement of them – the different sizes and shapes of each jar can help add depth to your space.
Display your photos in a unique way with a DIY photo banner. All you need is twine or thin wire, clothespins and your photos. Go for standard wooden clothespins or make them fancy by covering the sides with washi tape.
