Create this simple pictures wall hanging using just a few items to show off some of your favorite photos.
I don’t know about you, but I have 1000s of photos stored on my hard drive and very few photos actually displayed up in our home. I’m on a mission to change that.
For our one year anniversary, my husband and I rented a suit that matched the one he wore for our wedding, I pulled my wedding dress out of its neatly preserved box, and splashed around in the cold Oregon ocean with a photographer following us. These pictures turned out amazing and I cherish them so much!! This simple picture hanging turned out so cute and I love seeing it up on our wall now. *This post contains some affiliate links for your convenience (which means if you make a purchase after clicking a link I may earn a small commission, but it won’t cost you a penny more)!

Materials to make your wall hanging pictures:
1. Cut Paint Stick
First, cut your paint stick down to 5.5″.
2. Drill Hole
Drill a single hole in the middle of the paint stick.
3. Sand & Paint
Smooth all the edges of the paint stick and then clean it up with a dry cloth.
Once it’s clean paint your stick with the matte black spray paint.
Next, cut out your photos. I just printed 4×4 photos with a 1/2″ white border on my home printer.
Now, lay your photos upside down an inch apart from each other and hot glue your string to them. Make sure and leave enough string on the top to tie a knot once thread through the hole in the paint stick. Tie it on to the wood and you’re done! We have so many fun pictures that I still need to wade through, but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

Yep, I laid down in the freezing cold Oregon ocean and had so much fun! These pictures are amazing and I’m so glad we have these memories documented.
