Creative Ways To Display Your Photos

If a photograph is important to you and your family, you should display it in a unique way to prove just how special it is. Instead of getting a plain photo frame from the store or studio, here are options that will be suitable displays for your favourite pictures. 

Repurposed Frames 

Repurposed materials can make picture frames more extraordinary — by taking a forgotten object and molding it to into something new you create interesting décor. The website photoroost carries a variety of rustic and romantic picture frames so you can display your family photos with pride, show off your personal style and boost a room’s interior design. Some of their picture frames, photos blocks and holders are made of reclaimed wood—they were crafted from repurposedwood from century-old barn boards and timbers.The website also carries photo easels crafted from vintage silver-plated forks, which will be striking centerpiecesand instant conversation-starters when placed on a coffee table. 


The website photoroost is more than a place where you can buy beautiful picture frames and holders—it helps people organize their pictures and create gorgeous family albums. One of the fantastic ways that you can arrange your favourite photographs is in a printed calendar to hang on your wall, door or corkboard. The website has user-friendly software for you to set up your photos and creative designs for you to customize your calendar—you can add snowy backgrounds for the colder months, festive prints for holidays and more. If you don’t have enough photos available, you can always take family pictures specifically for the calendar and arrange some creative photoshoots.

Here is a list of family photoshoot ideas if you don’t have enough pictures for each month:

  • Every family member can wear a monochromatic colour per month.
  • Everyone can play dress up and wear a costume to represent each month, like wearing snowsuits for January, cupid outfits for February and sunglasses for June.
  • If your children are old enough, ask them to choose the photoshoot themes and see what fun ideas they come up with. 

Hand-Crafted Frames 

If you have young children, you can set out some craft supplies and encourage them to build their own photo displays. They can easily put together a popsicle stick photo frame and decorate it with paint, stickers, pipe cleaners, buttons or beads. If you don’t have popsicle sticks on hand, there are plenty of other materials you can use to make homemade picture frames with your kids—they can use cardboard, paper, ribbon or mason jar lids to start their craft. Remember to use these types of frames to display pictures that you don’t mind getting a little bit of glue or glitter on.

You should show off your favourite family photos in a way that proves how much they mean to you — don’t just stick them on the refrigerator door with tape or with a large magnet. A unique frame, a creative calendar or a heartfelt craft is a much better option to display cherished family moments in your home.
