Turn your wall into a photograph extravaganza cause pictures should be displayed, not hidden away!
The amount of ribbon and nails depend on how many rows of pictures you desire, and how far down the wall you want them to travel.

These are about five.five feet long and cover most of the wall!

  • How to make a photo holder. Photograph Wall Display - Step 1
    Step 1

    First, Cut the ribbon. I cut six pieces to about 5.5 feet, which takes up most of the wall.

    Then, to stop the ends of the ribbon from fraying, use the lighter to melt the ends.

    Be sure not to get the lighter to close or for too long. Just get closer and closer until the end of the ribbon melts just a bit.

    Next you are going to want to mark your wall for ribbon and nail placement.

    These marks are going to be covered by the ribbon.

    (Mine are 14" apart.)

    Next, organize your pictures. How many you decide to have on each ribbon will depend on how many photographs you have, and whether they are taken hot dog or hamburger. Mine alternate.

Cute idea but the nails would leave holes in the wall which looks really ugly when you take these down
