Creative DIY Picture Displays for Your Home
I truly believe that pictures are worth a thousand words. They capture memories that last a life-time. Every single home I have been in I have seen at least a couple pictures displayed. Many people use photographs as a way to decorate their home. The most common way to decorate using a picture is to print the picture out, go to a retail store and buy a frame, pop it in there and set it on the table or hang it on the wall.
Have you ever thought of transferring your photos to a piece of wood or even a window? I’ve gathered several DIY projects so you can creatively display your photos. You’ll be sure to catch the eyes of every visitor that steps foot in your house with these awesome ideas!
TRANSFERRING PICTURES TO WOOD
Who would have ever thought you could take a picture that is printed out and put it on a piece of wood? Not me! It is a fairly easy process although it requires some time on your part. The most important part of this project is making sure your photo is printed with an inkjet printer to ensure the transfer comes out bright and vivid.

RECYCLED DOOR PHOTO DISPLAY
This is by far one of my favorite ways to creatively display photos! If I had space to hang this door it would have been in my house yesterday. The hardest part of this idea is finding a door that matches the decor in your home. Also, most old doors have odd dimensions that aren’t sized to standard photos sizes. If you are somewhat good with a computer the best way is to print your photos on a larger size piece of paper and trim it to the size you need. If you want to know the step by step process you can find the tutorial here.

Also, the great thing about this is you can make how ever many strips of wood you want, cut them how ever long or short you want and hang them up whichever way you please.
