Board Game Installation

What you'll need:

  • Old board games and board game box covers— the more vintage-looking, the better
  • Hooks or nails for hanging 

How-to:

  1. Gather all the pieces you would like to hang on the wall. Mix and match board games and box covers to create dimension.
  2. Figure out the best setup by arranging them on the floor first or by using manila paper cut to size.
  3. Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement, hang the boards on the wall using nails or hooks.
