So first we tackled the basic of wall art – that you need it and what you can do to get it. Now, how do you put it on your walls? It has to be visually pleasing, easy to do, in most cases temporary, and cheap.
Here’s some tips for arrangement, especially if a gallery wall suits your fancy. You can cut sheets of paper that represent the size of your pieces and then tape them to a wall. This is a temporary way to allow you to decide how to arrange everything before putting a bunch of holes in the wall.
If you cut out representations of all your pieces but don’t know where to start, this chart gives a starter guide for different types of styling.
Less temporary ways of hosting your art is getting a small shelf and styling all your pieces on it. By arranging your frames overlapping and together, you can get a feel of a gallery wall without all of the individual hanging.
Another cool way to display pieces, especially if you don’t want to go through the hassle of framing things like individual prints, is to get minimalist wooden hangers and individual hang those.
In the same vein, clipping things to clipboards allows for a innovative display that is cheap and temporary.
Finally, creating your own type of mobile-hanging art is a great way to display your memories, especially if you’re the nature type. All you need is some branches, leaves, and rope!
And finally – the holy grail of hanging things cheaply and temporarily: command strips. Get hanging!
