How to Make an Inexpensive DIY Photo Gallery Wall

When my mom came to visit a few weeks ago, I had a few pictures on the wall in the guest bedroom which looked great.  But it needed something else.  I decided to create an inexpensive photo gallery wall with fall-themed decor.

Here’s how it looked when I started.  It looked good, but there was a ton of empty space under the photos.

I don’t do empty space!

I started with what I had and used the wall vintage style mailbox to hold faux flowers.  I’ve used it many times in other rooms, but it finally has a permanent home now.

Both of my sons’ brides carried sunflowers, so I used small ones and added fall leaves in the mailbox.

One trip to Hobby Lobby yielded everything  else I needed to make my gallery wall look just the way I wanted.

Everything I purchased was on sale except the “better together” sign, so I used my 40% off coupon on it.

I also purchased a metal “Family” sign and a fall farmhouse wood sign with a barn and tractor on it to balance out the look of the gallery wall display.

Here’s how it ended up.  I left space on both sides to add photos of my youngest son and daughter.

Disclosure – The photo canvases came from Canvas On The Cheap who provided them to me.

I selected the size I wanted each gallery wrapped canvas to be, then uploaded my high-resolution photos on their website.

They have different frame and wall-hanging options I wanted (I chose no frame and the self-levering hardware.)

My dimly-lit guest room doesn’t do justice to the high quality these canvas prints are.  I have a photo canvas from another company, and the quality doesn’t come close to these.

You might think they would be expensive, but the company is aptly named Canvas On The Cheap.

I ordered all 16″x 20″ canvases and they were less than $18.00 each.  That’s a steal!

If you’re looking for photo canvases, I can’t recommend Canvas On The Cheap highly enough.  They have extremely great prices and exceptional customer service.

Let me know what you think of my new DIY gallery wall!

I’ll switch out the fall decor for Christmas after Thanksgiving.  All my kids will be home for Christmas, so I can’t wait!

  2. Beautiful DIY gallery wall with such great images of wonderful mementos of your sons weddings and of you and your husband, where all started !
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Handsome men and lovely brides. I read somewhere that when hanging pictures, an odd number of items is the way to go. I see you used seven. Very nice.
