Photo Collages Without Frames: Ideas and Inspiration

Everyone loves photos. Even if you don’t love having your picture taken, you love having lasting memories captured and kept to look at whenever you feel the need. Instead of doing the normal task of throwing photos into a boring frame or album, why not highlight your most favorite family and vacation photos by creating a photo collage? Mix the frames altogether and use some of these ideas as your decor inspiration!

1. Traditionally Sleek.

We love the idea of having all of your favorite family photos blown up, put onto beautiful canvases and then displaying them in a traditional, yet sleek way right inside the living room for all your guests to see!

2. Shabby Boho.

It could be Polaroids or ones printed straight from a printer. Whatever the case may be, a small wall covered in less-than-perfect photos will create texture, and easy, shabby boho style.

3. Funky Landscape.

Again, you don’t need a frame, but attaching your picked photos to a funky palette is a fun way to style the arrangement. It adds a youthful, playful vibe, don’t you think?

4. Flirty Shapes.

Of course, you can always create a collage of flirty, pretty shapes … circles, diamonds and even a heart could make your bedroom or home office that much cozier and fun.

5. Modern Tones.

Take that canvas idea and tone it down a bit. Have them all printed in black and white ink for a chic and modern look, which is perfect for a home with lots of contemporary touches.

6. DIY Touches.

Grab a canvas and grab your photos and start to decoupage! This is an easy, fun DIY project that absolutely anyone can do. It also serves well as personal, eclectic wall art!

7. Accent Walls.

Yes, with a push and some gusto you can even make an entire accent wall of photos. You can design it any way you see fit and that goes well with your room’s theme. From bohemian to modern, this is such a bold, dramatic way to decorate.

8. Retro Magnets.

A wall of magnets is one thing, but a wall of photo magnets is something totally different. And it makes making a collage so much easier!

9.Vintage-Flavored.

For something a bit vintage and outside-the-box, try hanging up your oldest and most memorable photos by clothespins. It’s such a fun and unsuspecting way to show off your memories.

10. Posh Backdrops.

Use your photo collage as a backdrop in your home office or even in the guest room. You can make this idea conform to any other style but we really love the slick, fashionable way this piece has transformed the room.
