This DIY Photo Hanger Makes Your Photos Even More Fabulous

Diply 2 Oct 2018

You know the routine: You snap a really great pic with your phone and then...nothing. It just sits in your phone, roughly forever, where no one but you ever gets to see and appreciate it.

But you don't need to rush out to buy a photo album and start scrapbooking.

Instead, make this DIY photo hanger that lets you display your best pics in a simple, fun manner so everyone can appreciate your inner shutterbug.

Pull together your materials, and let's take some shots! Snap shots, that is!

Cut two pieces of 2x2 to the length you want.

We went with this size, but pick a length that works best for you and the space you're planning to hang it in.

Tape off sections with masking tape to prep your 2x2s for painting.

Paint sections with acrylic paint. You can paint each section a different color or do them all the same. You can also add painted designs as well. Then, let the paint dry, and remove the tape from the 2x2.

Using a ruler, place evenly spaced marks along the center of the 2x2s.

Next, drill holes through the wood on the marks. Don't forget to place your 2x2s on a piece of scrap to avoid drilling through the table.

Cut a length of string for each hole.

Use scotch tape to cover the end of the string. This will make it easier for you to push it through the hole in the wood.

Make sure all strings are the same length. Push the string through the wood, and tie a knot in the end.

Repeat this process and feed the string through the other 2x2.

Now, you can use clips or clothespins to attach photos, art, postcards, or messages to your new string hanger. Switch out your photos and artwork frequently to give your space a fresh look and feel!
