Creative Photo Displays with Snapfish

I'm a big fan of photographs.  I take an endless amount, in fact there is rarely a day that goes by where I don't take a photo, so I was very pleased to work with Snapfish recently on a creative little challenge.

Now that all of our photos our taken digitally, gone are the days where we remove the film and send it off to be processed and eagerly await the prints.  As a result of this some of us seem to display far fewer photos around our homes.

Have you ever thought of the different ways that you could display your prints?  We are all so quick to turn to a photo frame, yet there are so many other creative ways we can share and enjoy our memories.  They can make the perfect little keepsakes for yourself or even as a gift and with Christmas right around the corner why not consider this as a gift option for your nearest and dearest, I'm sure they would love being reminded of that special moment shared together.  

In a throw away society we often don't think about other uses for our rubbish.  How about using those jars to display photos?  Depending what way up you have the jar you could even pop some dried or fake flowers in there too.  To create this look I have just bent the photo into the jar and have pressed the image up against the glass.

You could even hang a photo inside the jar with a few treasured items.  I've used some of the confetti left over from our wedding in this one and included a photo of the confetti shot.

Another re-purposed item I've used is an embroidery hoop.  Nice and simple, just loop some twine around the inside hoop, add some cute pegs and you've got yourself a custom made photo holder.

A lover of the great outdoors?  If so I reckon you'll like this next one.

A simple frame made using twigs and twine.   

I think this would look great in a little boys bedroom, and the bonus is that it's so easy to make.

On the subject of making your own frames, have you ever thought about creating your own multiple photo frame?  I picked up a few photo frames from the local charity shop, gave them all a base coat of paint, then added a colour coat.  I've been meaning to do this for dare I say it a couple of years now, so was pleased to have finally gotten around to it.

Next I used some super-glue to glue the frames together and wall-ah there you have it, your very own multiple frame.  You can paint the frames any way you want, use what ever size frame you like and position them however suits you best.  And what's else is I'll bet you'll be able to do it at a fraction of the cost you would pay to buy one of these frames from a shop.

I've created a new board on Pinterest featuring lots of different creative ways for displaying your photos, the possibilities really are endless.

Snapfish offer a whole range of products as well as just your standard prints so why not take a look for yourself, and you never know, you may be able to cross a couple of gifts off that Christmas list.

  1. I love that pastel-painted multiple frame. I have seen similar ones in the stores and they cost tons of $$$$. Your version is just as pretty and much more personal.

  2. Thank you. They can be quite pricey. This was really fun to put together, plus I got to choose the exact colours I wanted x x
