DIY: Cheap & Casual Wall Art
I carefully took the calendars apart & used a utility knife & ruler to cut off the jagged edges where they attached to the spiral bindings of the calendar. Now each photo looks like it has its own crisp white mat. The black & white photos with the white boarder look so great alone, they can be used as is, so I created a very temporary, very causal grouping of 6 to hang over the bed.
Don't feel like all your photos have to be the same style or shape, you could easily create a gallery-type wall with a mix of black & white prints & colour prints of all shapes & sizes fit together like pieces of a puzzle! Be creative, it doesn't cost anything!
