Creating a Photo Gallery

Martha shows you a simple way to create a beautiful display of photographs for your walls.




  • Measuring tape and ruler
  • Paper (one large sheet or several small sheets)
  • Tape (optional)
  • Picture frames
  • Pencil
  • Painter's tape
  • Picture hooks
  • Nails
  • Hammer


  1. Step 1

    Measure the wall space you want for your gallery. Cut a piece of paper to that size (tape several large pieces of paper together, if necessary). Fold paper in quarters to mark center lines.

  2. Step 2

    Lay paper on the floor and experiment with different design layouts for your frames. Once you are happy with the frame layout, trace the outline of each frame onto the paper with a pencil. Use a ruler to make sure your outlines are straight and spaced evenly.

  3. Step 3

    Measure distance from top of each frame to where hook will be placed. Mark these points within the corresponding outlines on your paper layout.

  4. Step 4

    Tape paper to wall with painter's tape. Nail picture hooks where marked. Remove paper.

  5. Step 5

    Place all frames on hooks.

    I love this project! The instructions for this project are easy to follow and my gallary is fabulous. Thank you, Martha for all of your wonderful ideas. Every time I am looking for a particular craft project, I always go to Martha's website for ideas and am never disappointed.
