Photo Decorating Ideas!

I am always looking for FuN and creative ideas to decorate with portraits today... I thought I would share a peek at a few ways I have decorated with portraits in my home!
These ideas are very SiMpLe...and EASY on the budget.   

First off...these Simple Picture Boards made from 1/4" MDF, a little black paint for the edge, Mod Podge,  and your photo.  The size of these are 12x12.   A fun alternative to the regular 'ol frame!

Chicken Wire Photo Hanger (made from 1x4 cedar fence wood...and chicken wire.
We use this to hang random pics throughout the year...then when the holidays hit I use it to hang Christmas photo cards.

Just a few display ideas...

And... last but not Cupboard Door Photo Hangers!  If you are familiar with my have prob. already seen these...but had to share anyway...being my favorite!  You can check out my tutorial on how I made these here!  {SIMPLE}

Well...there ya have it...hope this might give you a little inspiration to get those pics up!!

Also...don't forget to check out Kristin Duke's "Decorating With Portraits" Series for more decorating inspiration!!



  1. The 12 x 12 photos are gorgeous!! I love that idea!

  2. I have a funky wooden sqauare thing I can't bear to throw away and now I know what to do with it, so thanks!

  3. I have been trying to think of a cute way to decorate with pictures. Thanks for the ideas!

  4. I reallly like that!! Great idea! Thanx for sharing!


  5. I love everything! I need you at my house, I wish. Thanks for sharing. And thank you for featuring me so many times in the past.

  6. lovely black and whites! i just might try this at home.

  7. I absolutely LOVE your photo display ideas! I featured them on my Friday Friends! post. You have such cute ideas for a lot of things, and I'm so glad you like to share. I will be trying some of these at home.

  8. What are the pics printed on? It doesn't seem like regular photo material would shape well to the mdf.

  9. I just had my 12x12 matte prints printed at Costco...and only put Mod Podge onto the board...and stuck the pic right on top. I didn't apply any Mod Podge to the top of the pic...and LOVE how it turned out!

  10. Hello!
    I love all the fun ideas! Could you please share where you got your mdf board? Did they cut it for you, or did you cut it yourself?
    Thanks so much!

  11. I bought my mdf board from Home Depot. It comes in a 2'x4 ' sheet and you could prob have them cut 12x12" pieces for you there...but I just cut mine myself.

  12. Where are those cream frames from? The set of 4 you have with the wreath. Looks like they are magnetic? Thanks!

  13. Hi Cameron! They are actually cupboard doors. And are SUPER EASY! I have a tutorial here with more info :)

  14. I love your ideas! I have to admit that I am one of those people that love love love to take photos, but rarely print them out. You've inspired me to do it! Thanks.
