1. Choose an odd number of pictures that have a similar theme. I chose to make it an all black and white gallery. You could use color pictures but frame them in white or use vintage pictures and small antique plaques, etc. There are limitless options, just decide a theme to make them work together in the collage.
2. Arrange them on the floor first to figure out the best configuration and record the measurements you used to space the frames. I used a tape measure and an old drapery rod to mimic the molding of the wall going up the stairwell. Try several different patterns and take pictures. Choose your favorite.
3. Using your measurements, hang your pictures! You may want to use painters tape or trace your frames on craft paper first to create a template on the wall to mimic your layout – just to make sure you have the right height and configuration. Enjoy your beautiful creation!
