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.

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!
