Hello friends! Kara here from Lillian Hope Designs. I want to share a few quick tips and tricks on how to create a gallery wall! If you have a large blank wall, then this is the perfect solution for the space. It isn’t hard either with my tips.
This gallery wall was for my entry way. I wanted to incorporate a place for guest to hang their coats, put their shoes, and rest their purses! I have seen MANY Pinterest posts on how to DIY a gallery wall, and I have tried many of those ways. For me the most unconventional way has proven to be the easiest with all of the gallery walls in my home.
How To Create A Gallery Wall … The Easy Way
STEP 1: Shop for items slowly. It took me a few months to gather all of these items.
STEP 2: Shop garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. I purchased several items at local craft stores, but then also incorporated many of my flea market finds.
STEP 3: Measure the size you want your gallery wall to be.
STEP 4: Mark that space out on your floor.
STEP 5: Lay your middle item down in the center of your floor space (mine was the hello sign).
STEP 6: Slowly work your way up, down, left, and right adding in items until your designated space is full.
STEP 7: Now step back and look. Start to move things and change it up until it looks how you want. You do NOT have to use every item you purchased. I ended up not using 8 items I had purchased.
STEP 8: Next start hanging your items up exactly as you laid them on the ground. Middle item first then work your way around.
STEP 9: I know this sounds silly …. No exact science as so many will tell you to do. Truly this has been the easiest way for me and I have hung many Gallery Walls! So give it a try!
