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!
