I’m a huge fan of taking photos and keeping memories, so when I had the chance to make a DIY Pinterest inspired photo hanging wall I was super excited!
One of the biggest issues I have with getting photos printed is the amount of effort it takes to go to a shop and print them out, which is why I very rarely get any hard copy photos now. So when Printiki contacted me, I was very keen to try them out.
They offer an easy service, where you can simply order the photos you want online and get them delivered to your door! The price I’d say is the same as going to a shop and you can get all different types of styles such as polaroid, square or retro styles. Personally I decided to go for the Square M* style as I like the clean-cut look. The shipping free in Australia is $4.95 standard.
The photos didn’t take long to come at all, I’d say only a couple of business day (I’m located in Perth, WA) and they were all really good quality! I used a couple of photos which I wanted to test and see if they would come out blurry as they weren’t the best quality but they turned out really well. You can also pick whether you want them to have a glossy or matte finish.
So once I had the photos, I also got some twine, scissors, sticky tape and fairy lights and I was ready to go!
Step 1: Place Your Photos In The Order You Want To Hang Them
This will be incredibly helpful so that you can switch them in and out until you are fully satisfied with the way it looks.
Step 2: Cut The Twine
Measure out how much twine you need per line (and include some extra for tying it up) and cut as many pieces as you have lines of photos.
Step 3: Attach Twine
Turn the photos over (making sure they are the right side up) and stick the twine to them with the sticky tape.
Step 4: Hang Up Your Fairy Lights And Attach The Photos
Once you’ve found the place for the lights, attach each bit of photo twine to the fairy lights. Personally I liked more of a messy look and so I put them quite close together and at slightly different heights so they were all a bit random. It is completely up to you though.
And ta da, you’ve got a very Pinterest inspired photo waterfall! Of course you can use string or ribbon instead of twine and you can just put it on some rope rather than fairy lights, it’s fully up to you. I just preferred the more vintage touch.
