How to make

Top tip!…If you’ve got a frame that’s the perfect size but you’re not too sure on the colour, you could always give it a lick of paint, Chalky Paints are perfect, to give it a brand new look.


Start by collecting all of the imagery you would like to ideally have displayed on your wall, and display in a suitably sized frame.


Make paper templates that are the same dimensions as your frames.


Then it’s time to get creative! Use a low tack tape to start positioning the templates on your chosen wall. A ruler may come in handy here if you want to have the same spacing between all of your frames.


Once happy with the layout of the templates, it’s time to start hanging the frames.


Carefully remove the paper templates from the wall once all of the frames have been hung.
