Photo Decorating Ideas!

I am always looking for FuN and creative ideas to decorate with portraits today... I thought I would share a peek at a few ways I have decorated with portraits in my home!
These ideas are very SiMpLe...and EASY on the budget.   

First off...these Simple Picture Boards made from 1/4" MDF, a little black paint for the edge, Mod Podge,  and your photo.  The size of these are 12x12.   A fun alternative to the regular 'ol frame!

Chicken Wire Photo Hanger (made from 1x4 cedar fence wood...and chicken wire.
We use this to hang random pics throughout the year...then when the holidays hit I use it to hang Christmas photo cards.

Just a few display ideas...

And... last but not Cupboard Door Photo Hangers!  If you are familiar with my have prob. already seen these...but had to share anyway...being my favorite!  You can check out my tutorial on how I made these here!  {SIMPLE}

Well...there ya have it...hope this might give you a little inspiration to get those pics up!!
