Hang your photos in a new and interesting way with this timber photo display – it’s super easy to make. Check out our simple steps to make your own photo display.

Tools and materials:

180-grit sandpaper

Bulldog clips

Dust mask

Hot glue gun

Hot glue sticks

Measuring tape

Pencil

Spray paint (any colour you want)

Wooden planks (any length you want)

Tools and materials needed to make a wooden photo display pane

1. Mark where you’d like your photos to go

Use a pencil to mark up where you’d like to hang your photos – lay out your photos on the plank first so you have an idea. You’ll want these to be evenly spaced, so use a measuring tape for uniformity. Your timber plank can be as long or as short as you wish.

2. Spruce up your bulldog clips

You can choose to leave your bulldog clips as they are, but we decided to paint ours to match that gorgeous natural timber – we used a spray paint in Rose Gold. Sand your clips first to get the shine off, and then spray with your desired paint choice. Wear a mask when spraying and make sure you’re in a well-ventilated area – outside is good. You can also choose to paint your timber but we decided to leave ours raw.
