Hi friends! It’s Kristen from Capturing Joy, and I’m here to share some tips about how YOU can capture a little joy and bring it into your homes.
In this digital age, I think we need to be careful that we don’t let family memories sit on the computer, and not print them to enjoy. I am a BIG advocate of encouraging others to decorate their homes with pictures. I have a series each February, where I’ve had contributors share lots of ideas. I’d like to show you 8 ways I have decorated with pictures in my home, so you can see the variety of decorations from room to room.
Decorating Your Home With Pictures
First is when I turned metallic pictures into DIY canvas. These are 16×20 prints, and I found the canvas at a craft store. There were too many great pictures from this photo shoot, so I included my 10 favorites!
In my girls fancy room, the gallery wall has 3 16×20 prints into the mix with quotes and lots of fun color to match their room.
In our play room, I used pictures from our family paint fight. I thought they were perfect for a game room, and even included the canvas we painted in our “fight.” It covers the TV!
Also in my girls room, I took a few images, and turned them into ONE color for a bit more of an artistic look. The tutorial is on the link shared.
One of my favorites is when I I used some vintage windows as frames for family pictures. I love how it turned out!
One of my first pictures DIY projects was using mod podge to adhere pictures to wood.
I took a picture with each child, and made a special display for just them of myself and them. This is my daughter and I, it’s to reminder her how much I love her!
Lastly, this giant picture frame sits in my office, right in front of me, and two years later, I still LOVE it! Click over to see the finished project and how it fits into my office decoration!
There you have a little snippet into my home, and how I decorate with pictures, and bring variety from room to room.
