Try making a geometric photo frame montage to brighten up any space and create an eye catching wall display. It's a great way to display lots of photos, artwork, postcards or even interesting pieces of fabric. The images can be switched over quickly when you want a refresh.

Materials
Selection of 4"x6" and 5" x 7" clip frames. (I used 26 frames total for a wall length of approx 2 metres).
Photos, artwork, postcards or interesting fabric pieces to fill the frames.
Masking tape (optional).
Picture pins for wall.

Method
Think about the space you want to fill and how to lay out the frames. I had a rectangular alcove and chose to accentuate this with a long thin wall-to-wall display. I hung all the frames either above or below a horizontal band to create an interesting shape.
I used masking tape to mark out the central band and then fixed in pins above or below depending on the size and aspect of each frame. I left a masking tape width between each frame.



Using masking tape to hang frames
We hung a line of frames below the masking tape before doing the top line
