Bryan and I have this collage of pictures in our front room.
I really love it.
We’ve moved 4 times in the last 3 years,
and it only took Bryan taking these pictures down and back up once to find an easier way to do it.
We decided to use old gift bags as guides!
First we traced the frame and then cut it out.
Then we laid our guide over the frame,
and then poked a hole where the nail should go.
When we were done tracing and cutting out all the guides,
we taped them on the wall where we thought we wanted them.
Then we measured each of the spaces to get it perfect
(this is the best part of doing it this way… it’s movable!)
When we had them just right,
we nailed right on top of them.
Then we removed the guides; all of the nails were perfectly placed,
and we hung our pictures.
We’ve saved all the guides now,
so when we move somewhere new, if we want this collage again
all we have to do it pull them out, tape them up, measure..
and ta-da! a perfect collage.
No more guessing where the nail goes, and making 3 holes to get it right!
