Hi friends! Today I’m excited to share ten ideas for displaying square photos in your home in another installment of our Canon USA collaboration. These past few years I've taken more square photos than ever before (thanks, Instagram!), and they aren't the easiest thing to find frames and albums for. No biggie! I got this. Ready?
1. First up, this gigantic grid display above my mantle. I used painter's tape to secure them to the wall and I will leave them up until the new year (or so…) This is a great solution for making a grid that can be removed easily, so it's renter friendly and perfect for people like me who want to change stuff all the time. I printed 4×4 inch photos using the same black and white action to give them a unified look.Having all of these memories as the focal point in our living room is making me SO happy! I picked a random assortment of fun photos with friends and family. I love walking by it every day! 2. Mason jars and glass containers turned upside down are a charming alternative to photo frames and they look like snow globes!3. Since it's nearly impossible to find square frames and square mats at our local stores, I used a traditional frame to create this fun collage of photo booth poses from my wedding. I printed all my photos 2×2 inches and adhered them to acid free paper with double sided tape.4. Use binder clips to hang a group of photos with thumb tack.5. Use various sizes of square photos (we used 3×3, 5×5 and 8×8 inches) to create a fun border around a doorway. We added a little patterned paper to create collage vibe.We printed all the photos for these first 5 ideas ourselves on Canon’s MG7120 (seriously, so easy to use!) on their 8.5×11 semi-gloss photo paper.6. Use berry baskets to hold stacks of printed-out instagram photos! I love having stacks of photos around the house for guests to peek through.7. Here's a second example of a grid display using colorful photos. I made this one above a piano in our old house!8. Adhere square photos to a canvas to make cute canvas wall art!9. Turn your square photos into a cute homemade scrapbook!10. Print your photos in collages to make an awesome custom journal!
Which idea would you try first? xo. Elsie
Hello my name Is Raquel for Spain, its fantastic your blog, Thank you.
Where did you find those binder clips and thumbtacks? They’re so fancy!
I like the mason jars. I’d try to light them also. I want to make coasters with square pics. Double sided… Gotta think on that.
YOu are awesome people!!!!!
I really needed a new printer and I ended up getting a canon after seeing some of your posts. So far, it’s pretty reliable. Also, I think you’re just the cutest.
I think I might use this post as inspiration to display photos in my guest room.
Is wonderfull, i love this idea, thanks !!
Big kiss from Spain 🙂
I love everything but I’d love to do the photo in a jar or the first year book!
This is awesome! I love the mantle display — this might be a great idea to put above my bed — I don’t have a headboard. So cute!!
IN LOVE with these ideas!! I love the photos above the mantel!!

I love these ideas!
My boyfriend and I recently turned an old coffee table we bought at Goodwill for $10 into what I like to call a “future family heirloom” by painting it and adhering Instagram photos to the top. If you would like to see it, there are pictures here: http://www.ohhonestlyerin.com/archives/19442
ABM makes me feel like I can do ANYTHING! 🙂
I like all of those ideas, thank you! I just created a new workspace and it needs a bit more decoration so I might steal one of your ideas to make it look more personal 😉
Love these! Such cool ways to display your photos.
I love these ideas to put to use the Instagram pictures. I had a quick question for you, do you combine picture from an event with other members of the family? Husband and I both take a lot o instagram pictures and I want to document his point of view as well to complete the picture, any thoughts?
I love it ! We have so photos to hang ! thank you for tips !
This is such a cool post!! So many great ideas! I love this blog!
These are great ideas. I have a ton of baby pictures of my son that I like to display in a different way. You inspired me big time.
I have just come back from a 3 month trip in America and I was looking for a way to display all my photos! Great ideas, thanks 🙂
I love the mantle piece so much Elsie 🙂
