One of the things I love to have around my bedroom is photos of me and The Mr. Especially memorable , fun ones. Which we seem to take all the time. We have so many crazy memories and I just enjoy being in my bedroom looking at them…They just make me smile!
I made a really fun 3D picture collage to go above our bed and I will show you how easy it is to make one. Then you too can look at your memories and smile.
I am just finishing up my bedroom makeover and this is one of the first projects I did after I painted my room. I really wanted something on this wall.
Wow!! Has this room changed…Wait until you see it!
Ok…back to the 3D Picture Collage
I laid out my plan on a piece of paper and knew the sizes of photos I wanted to use. I picked out some of my favorite photos and sent them to Walgreen’s to be printed out. The nice thing about Walgreen’s is that you can pick up your photos the same day.
I needed something sturdy to adhere the photos to so I used canvas board. I already had a bunch but you can get them at any craft store. I painted the outer edges of the canvas board dark brown using acrylic paint.
Once dry I grabbed my can of spray adhesive and mod podge roller, I went outside to adhere the photos to the canvas board.
Spray the adhesive evenly on your canvas board and give it a few to get tacky.
Once I applied the photo to my canvas board I just ran my roller over the photo to smooth it out and make sure the photo was evenly glued.
How easy was that??
Now to put everything up on the wall. I used the 3M Velcro adhesives to apply the photo canvas boards.
I hung my large 16 x 20 photo in the center and worked my way around it. To give the 3D Picture Collage effect I took a couple pieces of foam board and nailed it to the wall and then applied the photo with the velcro stips. Some of the photos have 1 piece of foam board and some have 2. Just layer to give the 3D effect.
I scattered my photos all around my big one and love how it turned out. Now I can add more or easily switch photos out over time.
Oh how my photos make me smile and laugh at the same time. There is nothing better in life then to be goofy with the love of your life.
