Fun Alternatives & Decorations for Displaying Your Family Photos in Your Home

Amazing family photos deserve an equally amazing display, but this doesn’t mean you always have to use a traditional frame to showcase them in your home. Every home is different and means every family portrait deserves a special touch.

Below is some inspiration for deciding how to display your favorite family photography memories.

If your home décor is very contemporary you might want to consider canvas gallery wraps, acrylic prints, or metal prints to showcase your photos. Going frameless is also a great option if you’re looking for something truly sleek and modern.

If rustic and chic is more your style, then why not turn old pieces of wood into stained photo clipboards, using binder clips, or clothespins to hang the photos against the wood. Another unique option is to hang your photos on a thin cable to make it look like a clothesline. Binder clips and clothespins work perfectly for this.

If you’re the creative type and have some extra time on your hands then there is the option of creating frames out of washi tape. This way you can incorporate different colors and designs around your photos to really make your walls pop.

If you are a fan of frames, why not buy different sizes, colors and styles and create one big photo wall that displays a variety of memories. There are so many shapes and designs that you can use to create your photo wall and really make it your own.
