Zoo Prints Gallery Wall

I’m back today to share with you the easy-peasy gallery wall of zoo prints I did for our youngest son’s new room.


On a trip to the zoo this summer I brought my camera and took lots of wonderful shots of the animals as I always try to.  But this time I kept the gallery wall in mind – meaning I tried my hardest to keep the fences and such out of the shots. 

Then when we finally got around to putting the gallery together, I had my kiddo sit down and pick out his favorite shots.  I actually printed these from home, which I rarely do, but I had received some free photo paper the last time I bought printer ink, so I thought I’d give it a shot.


I have a basic inexpensive printer and I thought they came out pretty good!

While he was picking out his faves, I got busy spray painting frames.  I used good ole ORB (oil-rubbed bronze) to keep a uniform look.  


Next step was to mount the photos.  I chose a brown pattern scrapbook paper to mount them on.  Since the frames were 8×10 and the prints were 4×6.  He had trouble narrowing his faves down, so some got two pics.  πŸ™‚


To hold the photos to the paper I used these clear photo corners this time.  This will make it ever so simple to change out photos if he wants to a later date.


Here is how it looks in the frame.


Of course the star attraction  (giraffes are his favorite) got a little special treatment.  πŸ˜‰


Gallery walls used to intimidate me, until I actually tried one, and now I realize it’s no big deal.  There is no perfect way to do them, it just needs to look good to you and to be filled with things you love!  I encourage you to try one today on an empty wall in your home!  πŸ™‚

  1. Those photo corners are a great idea! And what kid wouldn't want animals on his wall? I can't show this to my son because he's been begging me for six month to frame some elephant and rhino photos from our safari for his room, and I still haven't done it. But now I am inspired and I'll be adding it to the top of my list! Thanks so much for linking up with us at The Creative Circle! I hope you'll join us again this week!
