So I have lots of pictures, but how exactly do I display them in a creative, ORIGINAL way? Note: I have lots, so the picture frame idea won't exactly fly. I don't want it to be too sloppy either. Wink Though I could collage them, I'd like something a bit more than just collaging... and I still wouldn't know how to display them. Ideas? Thank you!

I saw the coolest thing in a restaurant the other day.  They had all these photos attached to the wall, then they just put up a big piece of clear plexiglass over the whole thing!   I don't think plexi is that expensive either.

Dunno if you still need ideas...but here's one my friend put together for me.

He took a long strip of wood, painted it black and screwed on those black paper clip type o things at random intervals.  You can then clip the individual photos up and there isn't any need for tons of holes in your walls. Just tack the strip onto the wall on both ends. It's really light so it doesn't need a lot.

He made me both vertical and horizontal strips...it looks pretty cool if I might say so myself.  Smiley

a friend of mine had the cutest way of displaying her snapshots. She took two eyescrews, screwed them into the wall about four feet apart, strung string between the two, and used clothes pins to pin the photos to the string. you could make them just about any distance apart, and it reduces the damage to the wall as well as the photos

I've got an old bamboo blind that I found on the side of the road, hung it on my wall, and put paperclips between some of the slats, and then just sat the photos in the paperclips.  looks good, and doesnt damage the wall(apart from 2 nails at the top) or the photos.

i made one of these with foam core, it looked cool, but it was a real piece of crap.  i don't remember were i got the directions to make it, but they said to just used tacks - the didn't stay, then i used glue to put the tacks back in, didn't hold very long either, then i tried staples, and that didn't last long either - now my foamcore has about had it.  next time i would use cork, or maybe even a harderwood and really attach those ribbon on hardcore

cork works real well if you can get it solid and thick.
