Use prints of all sizes to cover a feature wall. Keep it from looking untidy by sticking to a color or picture theme such as black-and-white images that are modern and graphic.
Use spray-on adhesive to position the pictures and smooth onto the wall with a rubber roller.
When decorating the room, set a simple piece of furniture against the wall to break it up and add one or two objects in contrasting colors to add depth.
Buy light-coloured cushions with removable covers, plus iron-on transfer paper. Print an image on the paper, then iron it on.
For something different, make a lampshade. Buy a white or neutral-colored shade or re-cover an old one.
Attach photo booth strips of friends and family to it with small bulldog clips. The strips are usually four photos long, so look for a shade just shorter in length.
Use photos to make a larger work of art by hanging them gallery style. Use the same size and color of frame with the same border to unify the design. Keep the frames small and light to hang them using small nails. Stick to a theme for the pictures so they appear as a collection.
Use small prints of similar themes to dress the window. Measure the glass space and work out the number and size of prints to fit.
Fix a medium-weight length of string in even increments across the window and use mini wooden pegs to hang the photos.
Using photos of what is actually outside the window, or what you wish was outside the window, is a clever twist.
Instead of numbers use pictures to tell the time on a clock. Try arranging pictures of one person at different ages. Buy a movement and hands from an art and craft store.
Cut a circle from 6mm MDF, spray paint it silver then secure the photos using spray adhesive.

There is no way those cushions pictured were done with iron-on transfer!

Where did you get the karge transfer paper for the Photo Cushion project?
