There are different ways to liven up a blank wall—some hang a work of art, others display a variety of prints and stickers, and a few work with plants and greens. While these solutions are favorites, majority would still prefer hanging framed photographs and souvenirs. A gallery featuring snapshots of family trips, get-togethers, and even photos of our relatives abroad usually brighten up the dullest of walls. If you've been thinking about working on your own wall of fame, you might be wondering how to best do it. To help you out, here are must-haves and a few tips to keep in mind:

1. Trust D-rings.

To achieve a seamless look, you can always count on D-rings—the tiny wonder that even gallery owners and professional framers trust. D-rings can be hung from a hook for larger frames. If you're working with smaller images, you can attach the D-rings pointing inwards then fasten the steel wires onto the loops.

RL Tip: Assure the accuracy of your project by working with mock-ups first. See how it will look like before working with actual prints as doing so can help you place your D-rings properly, too.

2. Hang prints without any damage!


Most of the prints available in the market today are equipped with their own hanging mechanisms. If you're decorating the home, there is a need to reinforce it to make sure it won't fall. Depending on the weight of your print, consider working with coated stainless steel wires. The size of the wire can range from #2 (15lb maximum frame weight) to #9 (90lb maximum frame weight).

RL Tip: Similar to working with D-rings, it's best to use mock-ups before proceeding! If you're displaying multiple prints, hang the biggest first to help you determine the space in between images.

3. Be creative with clipboards.


A visit to the bookstore can give you tons of ideas when it comes to displaying your favorite photos and prints. Check out the available clipboards and pick a theme to work with. There are wooden pieces and plastic ones in different colors to help you complete a certain look. Remember, with clever placement and interesting photos, you can create a captivating life-size portfolio. Since you can easily change the prints on display, you can update the photos as often as you wish.

RL Tip: You can use an adhesive to install the clipboards on your wall or use 3M Command Picture Hanging Strips.

4. Have fun with clothespins.


Achieve a quirky, rustic vibe by having a clothesline featuring your favorite snapshots. Use a durable string to achieve your clothesline then use clothespins to hang your photographs. Experiment with different wires and search for pegs you can follow. You can ace this tip even with minimal DIY skills! Secure the wire using hooks or a strong adhesive that would stick to the wall.

5. Maximize a narrow shelf and prop up photos and prints.


With a narrow shelf, you can display framed photographs in different sizes without worrying about drilling holes or working with wires. Simply install a narrow plank of wood—then showcase your chosen photographs.


Given this setup, you can spruce up the shelves with extra decor and other charming knickknacks to personalize it.
