D.I.Y. | Picture Collage.

8.9.14


I can't believe I'm even attempting a D.I.Y post but here it goes! There's nothing I love more than giving someone a home made gift. Going out and choosing something lovely to give to a friend is brilliant, but it's nice to put a little extra effort in for those people who mean something special to you. I first made one of these picture collages for a friend when i was 18! And I'm pretty sure I've made one for majority of my close friends since (if I haven't and you're reading this chummies - yours is coming!)

So first up what do you need? Well the main part of this is a clear frame, that can be any size you want. I really pushed the boat out with my ASDA SmartPrice one.. but it does the job! Next up you need some pictures of you and your loved one, some glue and some scissors.



And I guess the rest is self explanatory. Just lay out the pictures in an organised way, attempting to cover all space in the frame. I usually need to alter some of the pictures which is where the scissors come in handy! When you're happy with the arrangement of the pictures glue them down in place. Pop the glass cover back on and boom. A quick, easy and thoughtful present all for under a fiver! I really love these as gifts as they're so personal! And I know all my friends who have received them have loved them too!



Quite possibly the easiest D.I.Y post ever but hey I gotta ease myself in right? Happy collaging! xo

PS: Sorry Charlotte Lennon for showcasing your collage on this page, now the world has seen our drunken snaps! x

  4. Love this! I'd much rather a personalised gift like this rather than something out of a shop. For my 21st last year my bestie bought me 21 presents and one of them was a chipboard album full of photos and bits and pieces. Such a cute idea
