DIY Photo Gallery Wall

DIY Photo Gallery Wall

We are all about getting organized right now. Getting organized in 2014 was one of my goals for this year. This idea was one that we actually did 3 years ago in our house in Louisiana. We loved how this photo gallery wall turned out so well, we re-created it for our new house here in Virginia.

Supplies:

3 (or more) narrow ledge shelves. They will only need to be deep enough to hold a picture frame (ours are 3 inches).

10 or more picture frames (they can be the same color or use a general color scheme) read more

There are more and more people moving to a no-poo hair routine (not using shampoo to wash hair, but baking soda and vinegar usually).

Women are finding that making a dry shampoo can make their hair stay oil-free longer and they can go longer between washes.ย 

Excessive washing of your hair can strip your naturally occurring oils from your scalp and can also change the natural pH of your scalp. When you wash your hair less, overtime you may find your hair is less oily than before. read more

I used 1/4 inch elastic and measured her head – it was going to be 19 inches around. I sewed the ends of the elastic together to form a ring.

Then I just followed basic directions I found online for making twisted fabric flowers: tutorial here

I then added the flowers to my band with hot glue and backed them with fleece. read more
