Ditch the Frame




I have all of these pictures I wanted to display on Aidans wall. I wanted to do something inexpensive and saw this idea on a forum that I am part of. The photographer presented it as a livingroom idea but it really works anywhere. She truly inspired me to get going on the project! So I narrowed down my 9 favorite images of Aidan and ordered 8x8 mounted prints.
The steps to follow:

1) purchase 1-2 inch thick styrofoam (michaels and JoAnns carry it) Cut it into 2x4 strips or whatever size you need and this will depend on how large your print is.

2) Glue to the back of the image ( I used industrial styrofoam glue)

3) Purchase Industrial Strength Velcro. (picked mine up at lowes) Cut down to match the size of the styrofoam strips.

4) Attach to wall!

It really is so easy and the best part is....you can switch out old with pictures as time goes by!
