How to Create a Mini-Gallery Wall {photo tags}

I have a simple decorating idea for you that is inexpensive, easy, and meaningful! This would also make a cute homemade Mother’s Day gift. Today, I’ll show you how to create a mini gallery photo wall using a cork board, office tags, photos, photo adhesive, twine, and corsage pins!

I actually made these photo tags last December for our Christmas tree. I just resized all the photos in Word to fit the tags, printed them out on my inkjet printer, cut them to size, and glued them on with photo adhesive.

Several years ago, I bought an old frame from the thrift store and made a cork board out of it. It typically displays some fun silver utensils that were passed down to us from Matt’s family. I love this look but it was time for a change.

I changed out the original string on the tags for some textured twine and pinned them to the board using some corsage pins I had on hand.

I added some glitter paint droplets to a few of the photos just for fun. It’s not obvious until the light catches it just right and adds some whimsy.

This is such an easy project to do and costs virtually nothing! I love passing by my mini-gallery wall and being reminded of the biggest blessings in my life…my family :).

      I think you can get them at any craft store. I’ve had mine forever, so I honestly don’t remember where I bought them from. Upholstery tacks would look cute as well.

      Thanks :). I just used the same corsage pins and pinned them cris-crossed to hold them in place.

    What a great conversation piece to share with visitors too. I loved those tags on your tree, and I love this idea too! Such a great way to display a lot of memories in a small area of a wall. ~Kerri, A Pop of Pretty

    Hi Beth,

    I love this project. So many times I want to display lots of photos because I can’t just choose one and this is the perfect way to do it. I even have a bulletin board :-)

    Hope you have a lovely weekend!
