Hope you're all having a great Monday and today I have a fun little (or maybe I should I say BIG?) diy project to share. Introducing my oversized photo collage. Ever since I pinned this on Pinterest, it was one project I knew I HAD to do. I bought this big frame at Ikea and it sat empty on my landing upstairs for 2 months at least! (I know...pathetic!) I just couldn't commit to what photos I wanted to use and where I wanted to put it...so I did nothing. Which is lame.
A couple weeks ago I got the urge at about 10 o'clock one night to go ahead and do my collage, and this is what I ended up with. And needless to say, I love it soooooooo much!!! I carefully chose each photo (a few older ones, the rest new) and printed them all on my printer. They're all about 8x10" in size. Then putting the collage together was a little like a puzzle...I moved the pictures around until it looked just right. Then I just adhered the photos to the large photo mat that came with the frame and I was done!
I was originally planning on hanging it down in my scrapbook room, but I ended up loving it so much that I couldn't put it down there for no one to see! So I hung it in our front hallway and like I said....LOVE!
I still want to hang something else above it, maybe a word with some of my cute wood letters that I haven't used yet since we moved, so we'll see...for now, I'm glad I just finished a project! Heehee!
And here's one last little look so you can get an idea of how big it is...my 5 year old standing behind it.
Hope you like it!! Now go and make one for your house!!
(and P.S...these pictures don't do it justice AT ALL....it's in a really tricky spot to photograph, and trust me, it looks awesome...the pictures are all so sharp and clear...looks way better in real life!!)
