I had the same problem, until I saw some glittery clothes-pin style clips at the craft store. I immediately knew I needed to use them with my photographs! Below, I’ll show you 3 super simple ways to creatively decorate with your pictures. (These methods work for any kind of photo, not just Polaroid-style!)

A String Of Memories…

THINGS YOU WILL NEED:

Materials to hang polaroid pictures with string

  • String

STEP ONE:

Display polaroid photographs step 1

Cut your string! I like to use smaller length strands, so that I can create a scalloped or banner effect when hanging them together.

STEP TWO:

Display polaroid photographs choose the photos

Specific photos for string

Grab the specific photos you want to put on each strand, and simply clip them on with the pins of your choosing! I have multiple colors, and for this strand I decided to alternate between white and red clips. Be creative!

STEP THREE:

Hang them wherever and however you’d like! I put mine up in my little art studio using the Command Hooks mentioned earlier.

AND THAT’S IT!

The next two methods are very similar, and just as easy and fast as the first!

Clip Things Close To Your Heart…

THING YOU WILL NEED:

Materials to clip memories

  • Scissors
  • Clips
  • Magnets
  • Glue
  • Photographs

I’M USING:

Display polaroid photographs materials to clip

  • Scissors
  • Mini Glitter Clothes-Pins
  • Self-Adhesive Magnet Strips
  • Hot Glue (with gun)
  • Instax Mini Photographs

STEP ONE:

Magnets and clothes pins

Grab your magnets, clips, and glue! The magnet strips shown here are self-adhesive, which we will take advantage of later, but because we’re putting them on these glittery clips, that won’t be enough. (I had quite a few frustrations with my first attempts, they kept breaking off and all of my pictures were falling down!)

STEP TWO:

Piece of magnet

Cut a piece of the magnet strip to size, or if your magentas are pre-cut, simply glue it on to the back of your clip!

Placing your magnet

(Pro Tip: Make sure you’re placing your magnet where the metal clasp of the pin is. If it’s too high or low, the weight will drag the pin down once you try to hang it up.)

STEP THREE:

Polaroid clip magnet

This step is literally so easy I wasn’t even sure I should mention it, but once your glue has dried, clip them onto the photos you’d like to hang, and put them up wherever you want!

AND THAT’S IT!

Glitted clothes pins

The last and final method is the easiest of them all.

Floating Photographs…

Grab the same materials you’ve already got out, but don’t worry about the pins/glue this time!

STEP ONE:

Display polaroid photographs floating

Display polaroid photographs cut stripe

Cut a piece of your magnet, or not, if your magnets are pre-cut!

STEP TWO:

Display polaroid photographs add magnetic strip

Display polaroid photographs glue magnetic strip

Remove the self-adhesive strip from the back of your magnet! Then, carefully apply it to the bottom of your photo, as shown, if it’s a Polaroid-style, or somewhere centered on the top portion for regular printed photographs!

(Note: This method only works with the sticker-type magnets, as using any other type of adhesive on the back of a photograph would ruin it!)

STEP THREE:

Hang up your “Floating Photographs” and enjoy!

AND THAT’S IT!
